Loisa Andalio, Daryl Ong and Jaya are pop performers representing three generation of voices who recently held shows at the most iconic concert venue in town, singing their own brand of music and celebrating life achievements with their respective supporters.
Spanning Three Generations
Loisa, the youngest among them marks her 18th birthday with her first ever concert; while Daryl stages “Daryl sONGs,” a one-night musical concert singing a mix of his original hits and covers; and pop icon Jaya showcases her distinctive singing voice and accomplishments in the music industry with her concert “No Boundaries.”
Putting them together in one blog post is a challenge. Each artist and performances have unique characteristics, I just focused on the experience, dynamics and little discoveries.
There is no doubt that they’ve rocked their own shows. Coupled with remarkable contemporary artistry, they also inspired each and every individual who came and watched their shows to continue to believe in Filipino talents and simultaneously impact everyone regardless of age and generations.
Loisa, Daryl and Jaya represented three generation of artists, honing their unique sound in the process while basking into a fascinating journey of music-making for the love of their fans and artistry. Together, they’ve shared their love for music in one live music stage.
The 90s iconic band of brothers from Canada The Moffatts toured across Southeast Asia — Scott (guitars/vocals), Clint (bass/vocals) and Bob Moffatt (drums) — played their Farewell Tour concert at the SMART-Araneta Coliseum recently. Who wouldn’t forget the coolest photo pit experience where we had the chance to get those Moffatts perfect shots.
Meanwhile, a completely different version of Dave Moffatt (keyboards/vocals) and thrilling one-man show staged at the Music Museum recently after his absence from The Moffatts Farewell Tour in Manila.
“In February my brothers were here. I can’t make it honestly obviously, I have prior commitments but I’m here now,” opens Dave at the concert. It makes sense how pop/rock nostalgia is in full swing again.
It has always been about breaking boundaries that until today, The Moffatts remains the biggest selling international band of all time.
Just like Scott, Clint, and Bob, Dave is happy to be back for the first time in 16 years as he enjoys a month-long concert promotion. He’s been busy using his free time exploring the country and experiencing the Filipino culture first hand.
