TAGUIG CITY – Ipinakilala na ng Ramon Magsaysay Award Foundation ang lima sa kanilang gagawaran ng prestihiyosong pagkilala kung saan ang mga ito ay nanggaling mula sa South Korea, Myanmar, India, Thailand at Pilipinas.

Layunin ng award na ito na bigyang pugay ang ilang indibidwal na binubuwis ang kanilang oras upang tumulong na unti-unting baguhin ang buhay ng pangkalahatan.

Isa na rito si Raymundo “Ryan” Cayabyab, ang tinaguriang musical genius ng Pilipinas.

Noong taong 2018 iginawad din kay Cayabyab ng pamahalaan ang pinakamataas na pagkilala bilang National Artist for Music.

Naging tanyag si Cayabyab noong 1970s nang masungkit ng kaniyang kantang “Kay Ganda ng Ating Musika” ang grand prize sa ginanap na kauna-unahang Metro Manila music festival at international song festival na ginanap sa South Korea noong 1978.

Siya rin ang conductor, arranger, at composer ng award-winning Philharmonic Orchestra at Master Chorale.

Naging basehan umano ng Ramon Magsaysay Award Foundation ang naiambag na komposisyon ni Cayabyab na mas lalong humubog sa larangan ng musika hindi lamang sa Pilipinas ngunit maging sa buong mundo.

Ilan din sa gagawaran ng Ramon Magsaysay Award ay sina Ravish Kumar ng India, Angkhana Neelapaijit ng Thailand, Kim Jong-Ki ng South Korea at Ko Swe Win ng Myanmar.
