While at all times retaining a respect for tradition, guitarist Florante Aguilar and singer Lori Abucayan have successfully reinterpreted traditional folk music from their homeland and made it accessible for a whole new global audience.
Their debut album entitled Paraiso captures Florante and Lori’s fresh style and successfully illustrates their dynamic musical perspectives.
The appeal of this record crosses generational and national boundaries. Although the songs are recognisable to those already familiar with the warm Filipino sound, Florante’s contemporary arrangements and Lori’s soulful vocals make this album universally inviting.
