[PR] WilaBaliW FAHIRA Video Launch


















It’s been three years since WilaBaliW launched their last album 10.10.10. Now a much awaited event this coming Tuesday, December 3, 2013 we get a glimpse of what they have been working on for their new album, as their video for their latest single “Fahira” will be launched in Route 196. The single was released last 11.12.13 at Jam 88.3 and is currently on the number 8 spot in the countdown on it’s first week of release. According to vocalist Ian Tayao, the song “Fahira” is about the experience of being intoxicated, in a state of mania and panic.

Shot in one venue over an entire weekend by Bed Bug Design Ltd, the meticulously produced video showcases a 360-degree view of the “Kweba”, the band’s headquarters, which has been converted into their recording space, production and rehearsal studio.

INTENSE, extraordinary, exceptional, fierce and powerful! Erik Santos' 10th anniversary concert lived up to these adjectives. PICC was packed and filled with people who loved and supported him throughout his career.

The opening was different from the usual concerts we’ve attended. A shadow play by Pinoy Got Talent's El Gamma Penumbra showed Erik's journey to stardom. Erik's silhouette then appeared ending the amazing shadow performance. Fans cheered and curtains fell. The star of the night kicked off the show with a mash up of  Fly & I Believe I Can Fly. Erik was beaming with happiness seeing the full house venue filled with family, fans, friends, including fellow celebrities like Jed Madela, Gary V. and Zsa Zsa Padilla.

THE EXPLOSIVE NATIVE TOUR

First things first.

Ryan Tedder has every expressive hands. It’s probably one of the few little things that we’ve observed during their massively attended Araneta show. The vocalist of OneRepublic goes through every song feeling it with his fingers or with his fists. His hand gestures are observably very emotive. May it be caressing his microphone or beating his chest, or sharing a high five with the crowd, Tedder extends the magic of his voice though these little motions.

Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let us talk about OneRepublic’s show.

MYX MO 2013 GATHERS OPM'S BRIGHTEST TO RAISE FUNDS FOR THE VICTIMS OF SUPER-TYPHOON YOLANDA

MYX, the number one music channel in the Philippines, proudly presented its annual celebration of bringing you “Your Choice. Your Music.” live and loud last November 12 with MYX Mo! 2013 with an estimated 12,000 in attendance.

On a huge year for the music industry, MYX brought together over forty of today’s best acts in the music scene. The likes of Wolfgang, Rivermaya, Parokya ni Edgar, Chicosci, Callalily, Moonstar88, Never the Strangers, Save Me Hollywood, Rico Blanco, Rocksteddy, Gloc 9, Karylle, and many more took on the stage to create what was this year’s biggest event in music.

In light of the country’s current crisis after typhoon Yolanda hit Philippine shores, the proceeds of MYX Mo! 2013 went to the relief operations of ABS-CBN Foundation’s Sagip Kapamilya Campaign. From ticket sales alone, MYX Mo! 2013 was able to generate close to P400,000.

All participating artists also expressed their support in this move, with many encouraging the audience that night to participate in donations to the super-typhoon’s victims around the archipelago.

THIS CHARMING MAN, DAVE ELKINS

Words by Niche Dumlao

Dave Elkins back in 2009 with Katy Perry.
First a confession.

Back in 2009, when radio station U92 held a fundraising show for the Ondoy relief featuring Katy Perry and MAE, I was more nervous talking to latter than the former. I really dunno why. I guess it comes along with the territory where in I get all anxious interviewing artists I look up to. You see, I’ve openly declared MAE as one of the top 5 bands on my personal list. The minute I’ve discovered them on Purevolume, I felt in like.

But the minute I heard the whole “Destination:Beautiful” album, I fell in love.

So imagine the nerves going up to the band for an interview.

Filipino Inspirits (Infinite's fandom name) had another reason to love 2013. K-pop group Infinite visited Manila for the second time this year; this time, Sungkyu, Dongwoo, Woohyun, Hoya, Sungyeol, L, and Sungjong were back to hold their own concert. Manila is fortunately included in Infinite's First World Tour 'One Great Step'.

Last Sunday, November 3, the Smart Araneta Coliseum was the place to be for Inspirits to support the seven-member group. Judging on the huge and elaborate stage that was set up, you could already imagine that this concert was for the group members to get closer to their fans.

Before we knew it, the lights went out. Golden lightsticks were waving. Screams intensified.
