Manila Music Performance – Music Event in Abu Dhabi
Get down to the disco sounds of the late 70’s Philippines in a celebration of Filipino popular music.
Dancing queens and global crate-diggers, get down to the disco sounds of the late 70’s and early 80’s Philippines and embrace the Manila Sound. Spanky Rigor and Roger Rigor, co-founders of VST & Company, and The Union [featuring Jet Montelibano (formerly of “Music & Magic”), Jessica Casas (formerly of “Something Special”), Nino de Jesus, Jo-ann Visitacion, Fulton Montoya] lead a celebration of Filipino Disco.
Rooted in an amalgam of American soul, funk, and disco origins, this euphoric dance music is mixed with Filipino melodic traditions and filtered through the warm glow of the Manila Sound.
After the stars come out on Thursday night, the audience takes centre stage on Friday afternoon, singing choice dance tunes from the rich and groovy Disco Manila catalogue in a special live band karaoke.
