Germany's top rapper, Kay One, is rediscovering his maternal roots in Virac, Catanduanes. "This is home," says the 27-year-old European rap star, Filipino-German Kenneth Glöckler in real life, who is vacationing with his family in the Bicol region and getting his fill of the wind and surf.

Kay One, who released his debut album "Kenneth allein zu Haus" last year and was featured with the popular Berlins Most Wanted, even credits his song-writing talent to his grandfather Benito Bagadiong who was a local poet and writer. "I can compose a song in an hour," says Kay One in an interview at the sprawling residential compound of his aunt, Tess Bagadiong-Herrmann. He has composed all the songs he has sung, with one of them (Style un das Geld) picking up over 22 million hits on Youtube.

Kenneth, whose mom is former Department of Tourism public relations officer Anne Bagadiong, grew up in Ravensburg in southern Germany, near the borders with Austria and Switzerland. He says he began rapping at age 13 with his older brother and a pal in the woods.
