What an honor to join forces with maestro Michael Dadap. I consider Michael my mentor. I first met him when I was a student in the Philippines in late 80s when he encouraged me study in New York. With $100 in my pocket, Michael helped me transition and settle in New York.
At that time, I considered Philippine music unworthy of my time and wanted to master the European classical tradition. It wasn’t until I got older that I understood what Michael was doing. He led by example, his untiring efforts to champion traditional music from the homeland - the very music that I grew up with - highlighting its beauty and sophistication was the inspiration and spark that led to my musical career’s path.
And finally, it’s here! I am so excited to announce our new album LULAY. Hope you can join us as we celebrate its release on December 1st. Music samples and videos coming soon! ... See MoreSee Less
