Maraming proposal si Karylle para masuportahan ang Pinoy talents. Isa na rito ay ang pag-organisa ng isang movement for a cause. Sabi niya, “Dapat ano, e, rebolusyon ito, di ba? Pero kung kailangan nating maging aktibista for this, why not? I mean, ako, game na game ako for that para itaguyod ang Filipino talents.”

“Pero one thousand [pesos] na nga or one-five, mahal na sa iba.

“Pero pag ten thousand or twenty thousand pesos, kapag foreigner, you will pay."

Dagdag niya, “Well, some people don’t siguro realize that when Filipinos perform, malaki din ang overhead natin because we don’t tour.

“Iyong foreigners, they’re able to create big stages and I’ve watched concerts… that’s why ako, I’m not for limiting…

“Ano din, e. Kasi maganda din yung ma-expose ka sa concerts.

“I’ve watched Britney Spears abroad, I’ve watched Justin Timberlake.

“Luckily, kasi nga ang probinsiya namin... I like to call it probinsiya, kasi tagaroon iyong lola ko—Las Vegas.

“Si Paul McCartney, napanood ko rin. So, alam mo yun? They have a budget because they tour the world.

“Pero ang Filipino kasi, dahil ito lang ang market natin—very limited… limited din yung budget.

“So, siyempre, nakaka-hurt sometimes when people comment about Filipino artists.

“But siguro for me, I just like to think of it, maybe, they are not as informed.

“Hindi nila alam iyong nitty-gritty of that.

"Siyempre, who wants to know that? It’s boring.”


START A MOVEMENT. Ayon pa kay Karylle, napag-uusapan nilang mga artists kung ano ang dapat gawin para sa ikagaganda ng music industry sa bansa.

At handa raw siyang makiisa.

“I guess it’s our job to make noise, however we can, and to be together.
