MUSIC LYF: Tunog Natin Second Leg Held at Avida Towers Centrera

Avida Centera, Mandaluyong

The 2nd leg of the “Tunog Natin!” Concert Series was held at the grounds of Avida Towers Centera along Edsa. With the same campaign to promote Original Pilipino Music (OPM) with hopes to revive it and win again the hearts of Pinoys.

“Tunog Natin!” is a series of free concerts, presented by Avida Land Corp., featuring an all-OPM repertoire. The first “Tunog Natin!” concert, held at the Ayala Triangle Gardens, was such a huge success that it inspired more artists and OPM supporters to participate in the second “Tunog Natin!” concert.

Tonight, “Tunog Natin!” rocks the Avida Towers Centera site along EDSA Corner Reliance St. on July 23, 2011 at 7 pm.  The concert coincides with the launch date of the second tower of Avida Towers Centera, Avida’s latest condominium offering in Mandaluyong City.

Full force for OPM

The most respected artists in Filipino music from the 1980s, 1990s to the present join forces to prove that OPM will always be relevant to Filipinos.

They include: rock legend The Dawn; pop rock artist Tanya Markova; and pop quartet Kiss Jane; pop and RnB artist Myrus; acoustic prince Davey Langit; and balladeer Faith Cuneta. True Faith, who performed in the first “Tunog Natin!” concert, is back to please the crowd with their New Wave-pop fusion.

Also performing is singer-songwriter and actress Aiza Seguerra, one of OPM’s most talented hit-makers.

The highlight of tonight’s show is undoubtedly the back-to-back performances of Kitchie Nadal and Barbie Almalbis. Kitchie’s edgy, intense vocals plus Barbie’s distinctly endearing singing style is a combination that will bring audiences back to the 1990s, when these ladies ruled the alternative pop-alternative rock scene.

The legendary Mitch Valdez also graces the show. A veteran of music, theater, film and television, Mitch Valdez is one of the pillars of Original Pilipino Music and one of the founders of the Filipino singers’ organization Organisasyon ng mga Pilipinong Mang-aawit. She is currently the organization’s Chairman of the Board.

“Each leg of ‘Tunog Natin!’ offers something different throughout the concert series. That way, we can experience the richness of OPM. Tonight’s concert features the varied and exciting genres and artists within OPM. The artists in this second ‘Tunog Natin!’ concert are top-notch. Whether they are younger acts or veteran performers, they are simply the best in their respective genres,” says Myrus, Project Head of “Tunog Natin!”.

OPM forever

Event presenter Avida Land, Inc. is in full support of the show. “The success of the first “Tunog Natin!” concert proves that Filipino audiences have not totally abandoned OPM. We need to focus our efforts into putting more OPM ‘out there’ where audiences are able to hear and enjoy it,” explains Tess Tatco, Avida Land Marketing Manager.

 “Tunog Natin!” is not only a great time for reminiscing over classic favorites, it’s also our chance to watch the next generation of performers take OPM into new heights and thrilling dimensions. Best of all, we’ll be helping continue OPM’s legacy for future generations.
