There has been countless stories, essays, and articles of how connected this generation has become since the advent of social media. However, long before any technology ‘connected’ us, we shared a bond unlike any other that was possible only through music and art. A feat that best encapsulated this exhilaration was Tagaytay Art Beat 3 brought to us by Museo Orlina and Docdef Productions.
With a performance line-up ranging from soulful to rock, we were blown away by the realization and pride of how much our local music scene has to offer. We’ve witnessed performances from OG OPM bands: The Itchyworms, Mayonnaise and Hale, to our latest obsessions: Autotelic, Tom’s Story, and Farewell Fair Weather and everything else good in between from Oh, Flamingo!, UBE, Clara Benin, Reese Lansangan, Julianne Tarroja, Max Javelino, Leanne and Naara, I Belong to the Zoo, Ben&Ben, Munimuni, Anygma: Apoc x DJ Nicko, Kjah x Supreme Fist, and BLKD x The Tooters, Bea Lorenzo, Motherbasss, Mr. Bones & The Boneyard Circus, Dayaw and Adinkra Lumads. We’ve rocked, swayed and screamed in unison, transcending the barrier dictated by generation.
Aside from the surrounding glassware and art pieces from the museum, we feasted on works from upcoming local artists Rydel Reib Arayata, Gab Baez, Dennis Bato, Hannah Bundalian, Lee Caces, Kim Pamela Go, Mykie Concepcion, Jess De Leon, Jenny Gernale, Dennis Jimenez, Gab Loste, Ravel Mari, Anthony Molina Bea Pilacarpio, and Lhean Storm. We even had the pleasure of seeing murals come to life right before our eyes by Kris Abrigo, Jappy Agoncillo, Distort Monsters, Aral Cru, and Dee Jae Paeste.
The venue has made it even more intimate, the cool Tagaytay breeze caressing our sweat drenched limbs despite the summer heat, and the Taal volcano, glistening in the background. It looked as surreal as it felt. Thank you Tagaytay Art Beat, Museo Orlina, and Docdef Productions for having us!
