Were you able to catch today's episode of Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho on GMA-7? In today's episode, they had a story on what they tagged as "Promdi Rock" and other non-Tagalog recorded music.
Davao band 1017's Charing was also featured, along with the renowned Bisrock (Bisaya Rock) band Phylum and T'boli indigenous musicians.
Representing non-Tagalog Luzon are none other than the Kapampangans for their newly released RocKapampangan album. According to an interview made by their researchers with a certain expert on music, such movements are manifestations of wanting to oppose identity crisis. Gradually, young minds are beginning to think, amidst the proliferation of Tagalog and English records, why can't I sing in my mother language?
Sir Joel Mallari of Holy Angel University was also featured, saying that the RocKapampangan album inspired his balid (non-proficient in Kapampangan) son to perfect his native tongue gradually.
Here are some more screen captures of their feature on RocKapampangan.
