A Night of Bossa Nova, Dance Electronica, Indie Pop Rock and Soul Music

With performances by:

“Philippines’ Queen of Bossa Nova”
Tall, tan, young, and lovely were some of the words that Antônio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes used to describe the illustrious Girl from Ipanema; and in 2006, the Philippines was blessed with the opportunity to witness her beauty–in the fitting form of Sitti.

While the Techy Romantics are clearly based on the magic of electronica, there isn’t a hint of contrivance here. Everything sounds natural, everything flows freely. There is no strategy, there is no plan. Beats begin breathing, guitars come a-stirring, vocals creep in, and then the songs, they just come alive. And it’s not anarchy, it’s not chaos, because there is a lovely order in things. There’s just this powerful surge of energy that nobody can resist.

The Camerawalls rises from the ashes of Orange & Lemons – which disbanded in September 2007 after skyrocketing to popularity on the merit of three distinct albums that found favor in a discriminating musical audience. The music of The Camerawalls creates ripples of nostalgia and pop – manifesting an eclectic array of influences ranging from `60s-era Beatles, to The Jam, to the `80s guitar pop sound of The Smiths, XTC, Terry Hall, The Stone Roses, and The Pale Fountains, to name a few.

Juan Pablo Dream started as a bossa nova band in early 2004 and later on added horn section, and ended up as a groovy soul band. The band’s debut album “Soul Up” is composed of eleven original tracks including a bossa nova rendition of their single Nice Place. JPD also contributed a song to the compilation Hopia, Mani, Popcorn 2 with their version of “Bato Sa Buhangin”, an original from the 70’s band Cinderella. To create a Motown flavor, they added two new female members to compliment the band’s musicality. For sure, anybody can dance to the groove that this fabulous soul band has to offer. The band’s influences include Ray Charles, The Who, Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin, and many more.

Layag is an upcoming fusion soul group, whose music merges poetic lyrics, soulful melodies and catchy rhythms. The group is composed of Gayle Dizon’s powerful vocals and a roster of highly creative musicians who come from different musical backgrounds, each contributing to the band’s unique, yet distinctly Filipino sound.
