Today, we get to talk to one of Cebu’s local artists, Vincent Eco about his job. Suffice to say, I think it’s time we shed the spotlight on local music and continue #supportinglocal!
Dili na mapugngan ang gugma
dughan nato wa na nag duha-duha
gikalimtan na ang kaugalingon
andam ihatag ang tanan sa imo
Basta naay ikaw ug ako
A few days ago, I was having a conversation about the music scene in Cebu. It was so different from seven years ago. I’m showing my age, but stay with me, this isn’t going to be a rant comparing how much better, cooler, or more difficult it was back in the day.
In its core, good music is subjective. When you or I like a piece of music, we aren’t wrong. That piece happened to pique our interest, happened to speak to our core, happened to tug on our hearts.
Seems like we are experiencing a resurgence.
Slowly yet surely, quality gigs are starting to pop up around the city. Bands are getting together. Musicians are sharing their art. Recordings are being processed. Music is making their way around the crowd. The only thing lacking as far as I can tell is a legit music venue.
