Pinoy rock queens Barbie Almalbis, Kitchie Nadal, Aia de Leon, Acel, Lougee Basabas-Alejandro, and Hannah Romawac release “Talinghaga,” their first single as a group

The star-studded collaboration reflects on their respective experiences finding God and walking with Him in faith

After staging a sold-out concert last year at the Solaire Theatre, Pinoy rock queens Barbie Almalbis, Kitchie Nadal, Aia de Leon, Acel, Lougee Basabas-Alejandro, and Hannah Romawac continue their collaborative streak with the release of “Talinghaga,” their first single together as a group.

Released under WATERWALK RECORDS, a music label focused on bringing fresh Christian music to a new, streaming generation, the praise anthem narrates their individual experiences walking in faith with God and finding him even in the most tumultuous of times. 

According to Aia de Leon, “Talinghaga” is an attempt to describe the manifold glory of our Holy Creator. “While we wonder at His splendor, we find there is none like Him. While we revel at His glory, we find that we are blessed with His goodness and how His generosity is unmatched. The world we live in is but a temporary metaphor of the plans He has for us in His dwelling. Our final destination, without the tears and suffering.”

Barbie Almalbis, Mark Escueta, Pochoy Labog and Jarlo Bâse team up for inspiring powerhouse track “PIRASO”

The star-studded tune emphasizes the importance of faith during trying times

Alt-rock icon Barbie Almalbis, Rivermaya lead singer/drummer Mark Escueta, Dicta License vocalist Pochoy Labog, and fast-rising singer-songwriter/producer Jarlo Bâse have collaborated on a soulful track that unfolds with tenderness and power in equal measure.

Released under WATERWALK RECORDS, “PIRASO” tackles the journey of healing and spirituality amidst the crippling fear of uncertainty that all four artists have personally experienced in recent years. The song not only articulates the collective frustrations and sacrifices that people have to go through in order to cope with depression caused by the pandemic, but also reveals how faith has become a source of comfort and strength during trying times. 

Barbie Almalbis shares her challenging but colorful adult life on new album, Scenes From Inside

Acclaimed Filipino artist Barbie Almalbis celebrates her 25th year in the music business with the release of her fourth studio album, Scenes From Inside—out today on all digital music platforms via 12 Stone Records and distributed by Sony Music Philippines.

Derived from her experiences as a musician, a mom, a friend, a wife, and a pet lover during the time of quarantine, the 9-track concept album marks a new chapter in Almalbis’ challenging but colorful adult life. 

According to the award-winning multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter, the process of making an album can be tedious at times, but for Scenes From Inside, Almalbis was given a chance to record the album at a more relaxed pace, in her most convenient time. “I’m kind of used to recording at home and working virtually with producers, engineers, and my band, just sending files to each other back and forth,” the Dahilan singer admits. “I’m grateful for all the new tools that we have now. It has made collaboration and communication much more doable.”

Barbie Almalbis to drop her fourth album, Scenes From Inside this Friday!

Filipina singer-songwriter Barbie Almalbis is set to release her fourth studio album, Scenes From Inside on July 16 (Friday) via 12 Stone Records and Sony Music Philippines.

Delivering intricately produced pop-rock gems with melodic sweetness, the 9-track release is a testament to Almalbis’ consistency as an artist who never gets tired of leveling up her craft and expanding her vision with newfound inspiration.

“Recording is truly one of my favorite parts about being a musician, but working on everything in one go also often made me feel burned out, and it would take some time to get recharged,” Almalbis shares in a statement. “For Scenes From Inside, we got to focus on just a couple of songs at time, releasing singles instead of an album, allowing us to work at a more relaxed pace, and before we knew it, the album was done!  This new process has made this album the easiest one to finish.”

Groups Have Endured and Succeeded The 12 hour Sing-A-Thon

Singing for 12 hours is no joke, others it will be torture, but not for us Filipinos especially for those who take care of their oral health. To prove this, Bactidol made an epic event that will test the skill and endurance of the Pinoy voice.

The 12 hour Sing-a-thon held at Red Box Rock Dine and Roll at Eastwood mall brings a diversity of groups that came from different walks of life. Some are workmates from different call centers, some are barkadas who have the passion for singing.

A total of 21 groups joined the sing-a-thon that started at 12 noon. The groups have the liberty of choosing their playlist however they can get some food and drinks after singing selected challenge songs. And speaking of challenges, there is also a special Challenge Room wherein individual participants from the groups go on a head to head battle to be the king of the videoke!
DJ's Chico and Delamar were there to host the event for the whole day, they do also go around the rooms to see the groups in action. The event also gets a lot of feedback and tweets from twitter with the hashtag #12hrsingathon and #bactidol. I may not have a team on my own but never let the night pass without belting some songs. Ebe Dancel and Barbie Lamabis also made a surprize appearance to the participants and joined in the fun. I also made a short video below of what is happening during the event  and how exciting it was.
