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.

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)
