The Unknown Paragraphs with Melodies EP Launch

Guitar virtuoso, singer and songwriter Glenn Mapue has launched his EP ‘The Unknown Paragraphs with Melodies’ on April 10 at Autonomy and it was a success.

The event showcased the wide musicality of Mapue as he brought his bands that played different genre. He opened up the night playing with his group featuring a female singer rocking out the evening and there’s his trio group named Bluestrip for a more strip down music, his other band Mint, which I also played guitar, for Beatle-influenced songs and Mushroom, the funky guitar driven-band that reminded me of Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Other performers on the night were people at Songwriter’s Philippines that include Kuya Kurt, Jyel Tagbo, Lester Namocatcat, Pikoy, Jeffrey Yumol, Leslie Navarro, Jong Sumangil, Bryan Amparo, Jaymark Reynon, Dence Unwired and Jeczerius, alternative band Flytrap, Sending Raven and Quatro.

Here are some vids from the event.


Music Collaboration: Karuwaje by Bogchi Andrada

Haven’t played live that much since last year but have continued playing in some other ways by collaborating with different independent artists.

One of them was Bogchi Andrada of the independent alternative band Flytrap, who had written this nice song titled “Karuwaje”. Another contributor to this music collaboration was Jyel Tagbo.

Here’s the song (written in Filipino) which I laid guitar parts and synth together with Jyel’s other instrumentation.
