Swiss Diplomat pays tribute to the Philippine through his songs
As native speakers of the Filipino language, it’s been a different kind of amusement to us when a foreigner sings fluently using this langue. Dubbed as the “Singing Diplomat,” Raoul Imbach is no newcomer on the music scene.
Living in the Philippines for three years has inspired him to create the album Tribute to the Philippines with the Wild Tortillas. The album has 13 songs, half of which are in Filipino. There’s also a French version of the hit song “Anak.”
Born and raised in Switzerland Imbach just celebrated 50 years of a career as a singer, performer, and some 15 years as a composer.

Raoul has released 10 albums of his own compositions. He has performed around the world and made the music stage his second home.
As head of cultural affairs, Raoul hopes to rally 10 to 15 Swiss companies active in the Philippines to support the Swiss Cultural Fund of the Philippines.
