We are Believers of Filipino Music because of these guys

Posted by Degenerate || @Alvin Louis || Inspired by @TeamManila

On June 28, 2012, Dong Abay, in cooperation with Lockdown Entertainment and Team Manila, successfully launched Rebulto at Cubao X. Rebulto is Dong’s latest album – his tribute to our National Hero Dr. Jose P. Rizal. It is produced by rockstar legends Buddy Zabala and Raimund Marasigan.

Dong Abay’s contributions to OPM is something to be proud of. His lyrics have substance. He doesn’t write just for the sake of writing, he educates through his music.

Some people say that OPM is dying. It’s not. In my opinion, OPM is alive and well. I think people are just sick of the novelty songs that “The Man” tries to overfeed us with. OPM is alive because we have artists who value substance. Team Manila recognizes and supports these artist, and we should too!

This group of musicians have assembled to give life to the music of Rebulto in a live band setting. Usually, it would be a painstaking and even costly task to put together musicians of this caliber, but they’ve volunteered and collaborated because of their admiration for Dong Abay’s lyrical and musical skills. His cultural significance remains unparalleled and recognized to this day. 6 years since his last album, Dong Abay’s “Rebulto” is an album that celebrates creativity with a purpose- backed up by the best musicians this side of the local music scene. Let’s support Dong Abay’s “Rebulto”!
