El Gamma Penumbra

El Gamma Penumbra is a “shadow play” dance/theater group from Batangas, Philippines. I found out about them through the “Pillin Mo Ang Pilipinas” (Choose Philippines) tourism campaign. I later learned that this was their performance at the Pilipinas Got Talent Season 3 Grand Finals. With such an a unique and awesome performance, I actually thought they won (only they didn’t; they placed 4th overall).

Fast forward a couple of years later, and this time they are now in Asia’s Got Talent. Their audition piece followed the story of a couple in love. It merited a Golden Buzzer from one of the judges, ushering them into the semis.

While their audition piece was cute and sweet, it is their later performances in AGT that were even more touching, awe-inspiring and relevant. In the Semi Finals, their presentation depicted the atrocities of war. Their most recent performance–at the Grand Finals–was a touching tribute to Mother Nature.


Check out the other grand finalists’ performance on the official YouTube channel of Asia’s Got Talent.


One thought on “El Gamma Penumbra

  1. Couldn’t agree more. I still remember them back then Pilipinas Got Talent pa. They didn’t make it pero look naman! God has better plans. Although part of me feels bad for Gerphil and Khusugtun. 🙂 Pero sana, true to the grand prize, they make it to perform in Marina Bay Sands and to the world later!
