Looks like Coke is getting their hands warm on Filipino music. They've been always like that and despite hard times, they've managed to put up tons of concerts, shows and caravans that make us all proud of our own music. They're not stopping there because every Saturday, they will be seen helping established, up and coming and indie bands + artists to up the ante on their OPM game for COKE STUDIO PH. It's a new show seen on TV5 every Saturday at 7PM and just a few weeks ago I had the opportunity to see the launch at SMX Convention Center. It was like a town fiesta like no other!
|The crowd wasn't letting down as throngs of them lined up even after the first performers came out. Sandwich opened the show, I went ballistic! Haha!|
|They switched back to acoustic and played my favorite Eraserheads songs, an era I am very familiar with.|
|Then they toned down a bit and made it a bit romantic. These two had us feel like we were in a park busking in the moonlight.|
|I couldn't remember their name but they played percussion instruments like they were in Rio De Janeiro. I'd like this in my own party!|
|When Sandwich came on stage, I shouted, I jumped with excitement, and joined in with the crowd who wanted more of this music.|
|For the finale, they had the artists, the executives from Coke and the bands on stage including Franco. God was I so zonked this night but I still got my A game on. I wished the evening wouldn't stop!|
|Thank you so much Coca Cola Philippines for the opportunity to party with you guys! Every year I always look forward to your gigs!|
Again for those who would want to see the show and how you mix in the old and the new, keep it on TV5 every Saturday at 7PM. You'll like Noel Cabangon do it with rapper CurtisSmith, and other artists on the pipeline. Cheers to Coke and Pinoy Music!
