All about Original Pilipino Music
While the local music scene has changed since the golden age of Pilipino music - which took place during the late 1970s-, the acclaim for OPM concerts only proves that the Philippines' art is still very much alive. Due to the countries' intense history, this music often combines indigenous influences with music from neighbouring Asian countries, as well as the remnants of the Spanish period - known as Harana and Kundiman. Consequently, OPM lovers can expect to hear unique styles, which can range from pop songs, ballads, lyrical popular songs and even commercial tunes!
This folk-styled music often incorporates the sounds of Filipino instruments, such as the Kulitang - a racked gong chime instrument from the south of the country- and the gangsa, a flat gong played by indigenous groups. Plenty of traditional dances also acompain OPM, elevating the concerts and ensuring everyone dances until the night ends. If you want to stay up to date with the latest original Philippine music, as well as buy OPM tickets and watch the legends perform, StubHub is the place to go to!
While many names have made it to the history books of Original Pilipino Music, there are some artists which are still giving their absolute all nowadays! This is the case of Basil Valdez, the Filipino balladeer who can boast of popular songs like "Paraisong Parisukat" and "Paano Ba Ang Mangarap". And lets not forget about the charming Regine Velasquez, who rose to fame with the song "Kung Maibabalik Ko Lang" and even represented The Philippines during the 1989 Asia-Pacific Song Contest! Proving that OPM involves multiple styles is megastar Lea Salonga, who has dazzeled concert-goers with her powerful soprano voice. And keeping alive the tradition with the youth, Daniel Padilla was appointed Junior Ambassador, promoting activities to build connections to their musical roots.
