Guitar aficionados who are mostly into jazz and blues were given a treat last September 24-28, 2014 as The 3rd International Guitar Festival 2014 happened on three different venues namely Murphy’s Music Room at Legaspi Village Makati, 12 Monkeys Music Hall at Century City Mall and Venice Piazza at McKinley Hill. The 5-day event, which was also called “The World on a String”, featured electrifying performances from some of the country’s prominent and upcoming names, as well as foreign artists.
It was an experience that was exhilarating as I got the privilege to jam with some friends (Jeff Pagaduan, Diwa De Leon and Cacophony) who were set to perform on the show at Venice Piazza on the 27th. Other performers on that night included Johnny Alegre’s fusion band Humanfolk, classical guitarist Roneil Santos, instrumentalist Jerome Rico, Hare Krishna, Ugo Guido and Khaossia from Italy.
Here are some of the footages from that evening.
