Noel Cabangon’s Staying Power in Acoustic Music

Noel Cabangon has proven his staying power with this new record, Acoustic Noel. Songs included are fans’ most requested songs and refreshing take on 12 modern classics. Inspired by the chart-topping and multi-platinum albums “Byahe” and “Tuloy Ang Byahe,” Acoustic Noel covers OPM classics from various decades. Masasabi kong isa siya sa kanlungan ng OPM at isa sa mga haligi na nagpapatibay ng musikang Pilipino. Noel Cabangon was one of the artists who can make us smile or cry within the context of an authentic performance in a seamlessly acoustic mood.Acoustic Noel (2)

Recent performances were sold out. We’ve seen him perform jazz. His accompaniment with the orchestra is one of the most memorable for me. With his version of Rizal Underground’s “Bilanggo” in this album, you can listen to the generous outside-rock element of him but we still wanted to see him rock onstage soon.
