Filipino Indie Music Artists Shine on Sundown
Most music artists in the Philippines often struggle to climb their way to the top. Only a select few can stand in the spotlight, while others continue to play in the shadows. There are many aspiring Filipino indie artists, yet still unheard.
Sundown is an avenue for up-and-coming Filipino artists. This Filipino music show features various indie artists and gives them a chance to showcase their craft.
Sundown invites solo artists, duos, bands, and rappers. It features different original music from artists. The show explores various genres, to show viewers that music is music. It features different music genres such as acoustic, hip-hop, rock, pop, and alternative.
The indie music artists share their experiences and roots. Some of the artists have started at a young age and honed their skills. Meanwhile, there are some that started later in life, but it does not faze them from pursuing their music.
Music As An Expression
The show also explores the struggles and difficulties of being a recognized music artist. Filipino artists featured in the show share their experiences in pursuing music and their inspirations.
Flip The Don (FTD) one of the rappers in the show shared his experiences as as an aspiring artist.
Music is important to me. Because of music, I met a lot of friends. Through music, I am able to express my feelings when I feel sad or when I want to tell something to people to inform them.-Flip The Don (FTD)
Another artist from the show named ZAE performed her song 8888 in collaboration with Gra The Great and FTD. The song talked about the systemic struggles within the country and also with man himself.
Many of these indie artists use their craft to be a mouthpiece of change in the country. Despite the struggle of being recognized, they still continue to pursue their dreams.
Sundown is produced by Sagisag Inc. with the hope to revive the independent music scene in the Philippines. Meet more of these talented Filipino indie music artists at Sundown. It is broadcasted at Peoples Television Network Inc. (PTV4) every Friday at 5 pm.
