Classic Pinoy Folk/Rock Music, ASIN ,atbp.

Asin is one of my favorites,I still love to listen to their old albums. One thing I miss about this kind of music is the message and the beautiful melody. It is very simple yet meaningful.
Great musicians like Freddie Aguilar, Florante, Heber, Coritha , Sampaguita, Juan De La Cruz band,Mike Hanopol, Maria Cafra,Anak Bayan, Friction band, Abrakadabra band.... their music is just timeless.
Grace Nono her music reminds you that you have to be proud of your ethnic background.She oozes originality, courage, authenticity,and pride in true OPM.Noel Cabangon,Gary Granada , talented great musicians. Cynthia Alexander,(joey's sis) with the amazing talent . Joey Ayala, whom I have deep respect for as a person, a very good singer/ songwriter, creative musician, who until now is still active and continues to inspire and spread the message through his music. It is always refreshing when you get to hear Joey Ayala perform live or just listening to his albums. His distinctive sound and rhythm reminds me of where I came from---the indigenous instruments until now are still used by many minority tribes.
I just hope that this kind of music will continue and be heard by future generations.

Try Van Morrison it's very good for relaxation, especially when you're on your couch drinking whiskey he he he or Emmylou Harris... anyway i'll give you all my lists of singer and song writers that i really appreciate or try jass music, it's good for relaxation also! The real music is accompanied only by a guitar together with three voices in it, the tenor,alto and soprano. Oh man it's great,I'll find one for you, keep in touch!

I had collections of Jazz, blues music. contemporary, avant- garde, free jazz etc. For listening pleasure it depends on my mood..With some of my friends we love to listen to top 40's. So it depends whom I am with.
I had few of Van morrison, I am not so much into Emmylou Harris.
When I watched Berlin Jazz Music Festival, there are artists that I appreciate more on live than to listen to their cd.
Thanks :)

That's nice that you had a chance to met them. The place must be the Conspiracy Cafe, Quezon City.
Yes they are all great and nice people. :)

You're welcome:) Yes Eagles made it at the top surpassing the typical trend pop, like Britney spears.
That's good at least you still continue of what you love most to perform and play music. Thanks also for taking time reading my blog.
Have a nice day! God Bless:)
