In the effort to ignite the spark in the hearts of music enthusiasts, Avida Land Corp launched a free concert in support of OPM music. The June 15 concert, which is the first in the series, coincides with the launch date of the second tower of Avida Towers San Lorenzo, Avida’s latest condominium offering in Makati. The Tunog Natin concert will be part of the Colors of Freedom celebration at Makati. There were a lot of promotional offers at the Avida booths just like trade show booths.
The concert featured the country’s top performers and Ayala Land’s top executives for the unveiling of the new Avida Towers San Lorenzo, Tower 2.
To heat things up the concert started with a spectacular acoustic performance by Aries Sales.
Followed by a toast to good life.
OPM Legend Jim Paredes was the first performer of the night and he definitely brought the house down with songs from his new album. Butong Pakwan, the carrier single from his Laro album had me craving for butong pakwan. It not an ordinary love song. Very OPM it reminded me songs from the 70′s and early 80′s, when songs tell stories.
After a memorable, trivial, rapping performance by an OPM legend, it was 6 Cyclemind’s time to shine.
It was my first time to see them perform without Ney. Nevertheless, it was still rock and roll to me. They played three songs and made the audience stand up, jump and sing their heart out. Great choice of songs, Kung wala na, a mash up of Sandalan and Kaleidoscope World and Alapaap.
I went home early and was able to watch other artists perform. I was hearing the ladies scream when Callalily was performing. I also missed Pedicab, Myrus, Arnee Hidalgo, Pricess Velasco, Sabrina and 1:43.
It truly has been a remarkable even for OPM music. I hope that more Filipinos get to appreciate the beauty of Filipino sound and hope that it gets the support that it needs. Let’s all support OPM.
