  • 5 Reasons To Go To Malasimbo Music and Arts Festival 2017
  • Malasimbo Music and Arts Festival 2017 is less than a month away, and if you’re still thinking of whether you should go and have the Malasimbo experience, Philippine Primer gives you five of the many things you need to see in this year’s festival.

    1. Music

    Year after year, Malasimbo continues to bring the best of local and international music. No matter what the genre is – jazz, soul, reggae, roots, and dance music contemporaries – the festival becomes a good platform for these artists to showcase and let their music be heard by more people.

    This year’s local performers include Apartel, Jeck Pilpil & Peacepipe, Brass Pas Pas Pas Pas, Similar Objects, crwn, Curtismith, Xanders, sKarm, Moophs, and Microphone Mechanics.

    International acts – Afro-Cuban Pianist Alfredo Rodriguez, Australian Soul Jazz Performer Jordan Rakei, and Canadian Electronic Music Artist Tennyson – will also serve as the main acts for this year.

    1. Art

    Malasimbo is also known to not only highlight the best of today’s music, but also give the people a feast that their eyes would enjoy. The artworks aren’t something that are merely exhibited; they become the magical element that turns the regular Malasimbo Amphitheatre into a tropical wonderland.

    Although Malasimbo has both resident and guest artists, the two groups both have something common that’s etched in their pieces:  love for nature and the festival’s creative energy.

    Some of the artists whose works will be featured this year are: Agnes Arellano, Wawi Navarroza, Alwin Reamillo, Denis Lagdameo, Lena Cobangbang, and Raha Rodriguez.

    1. Nature

    Puerto Galera is one of the country’s top attractions because of its beautiful beaches and breathtaking landscapes – two of the things that one shouldn’t just miss. The Malasimbo Amphitheater, where the festival would take place, is also a sight to look forward to as people gets to be chill on the grass-terraced area while listening to good music.

    1. Culture

    People also get to have a glimpse of Mindoro’s culture while enjoying the whole Malasimbo experience. Endorsed  by the Department of Tourism as a “catalyst for the advancement of the country’s culture and arts,” they also partnered with d’Aboville Foundation to honor the island’s indigenous Mangyans and to highlight their language, and handicrafts such as beaded jewelry, fabrics, and baskets.

    People may also take part in Malasimbo and d’Aboville Foundation’s fundraising activity by purchasing a lamp kit (P1000) online. The money which will be gained in the said project will help the Liter of Light Foundation in providing lights to the Mangyan homes.

    1. People

    The three-day festival is a great place to bond and enjoy arts and music with friends and loved ones. It’s also a great opportunity to meet and interact with new people with the same interests as you – may it be with the jazz fan you have randomly had a conversation with, or with the artsy stranger you happened to bump with, drink in hand.

    Malasimbo Music and Arts Festival will be running from March 10-12, 2017 at the Malasimbo Amphitheatre in Puerto Galera, Oriental Mindoro.

    For tickets and for more information, you may visit Malasimbo’s official website and Facebook page.
