TUNOG NATIN Free OPM Concert sets a Second Leg on July 23, 2011

FILIPINOS bring out their best in times of adversity—and now that Original Pilipino Music (OPM) is slowly fading, Filipino artists and audiences are working together to save it.

Efforts are currently focused on the second leg of Tunog Natin free OPM concert series to be held at the grounds of Avida Towers Centera along EDSA Corner Reliance St. on July 23, 2011 at exactly 7pm. Presented by Avida Land Corp., the concert showcases the best of Filipino music through the years. It coincides with the launch date of the second tower of Avida Towers Centera, Avida’s latest condominium offering in Mandaluyong City.


Power line-up

The all-OPM repertoire of Tunog Natin will be performed by some of the most respected artists in Filipino music from the 1980s, 1990s to the present.

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



Also in the line-up is singer-songwriter and actress Aiza Seguerra, one of OPM’s biggest, most talented stars.

One of the highlights of the show is undoubtedly the back-to-back performances of Kitchie Nadal and Barbie Almalbis, two of the greatest voices in the alternative pop-alternative rock scene. Kitchie’s edgy, intense vocals plus Barbie’s distinctly endearing singing style are a match that will surely wow the audience.

The legendary Mitch Valdes will also be performing. A veteran of music, theater, film and television, Mitch is one of the founders of Organisasyon ng mga Pilipinong Mang-aawit (OPM). She is currently the organization’s Chairman of the Board.

“We want each leg of Tunog Natin to offer something different each time to highlight the richness of OPM. For this second concert, we again exhibit the many genres within OPM—we have a varied, exciting line-up of artists for this show,” says Myrus, Project Head of Tunog Natin.

“I’m also proud to say that we have been consistent in keeping our promise to showcase the very best of 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,” he adds.

OPM all the way

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 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.

All Filipino music lovers are encouraged to attend the second Tunog Natin free concert—not only will we have great time reminiscing over classic OPM favorites, we will also see how the next generation of performers are taking our local music into new, thrilling dimensions. Best of all, we’ll be helping continue the legacy of OPM for future generations.

Tunog Natin is supported by the Organisasyon ng mga Pilipinong Mang-aawit (OPM) and Aquaquest .
