Rico Blanco will release commemorative CD at the Tanduay Rock Rhum Fest tonight



Singer/songwriter Rico Blanco shows no signs of slowing down despite the numerous achievements and endeavors he's been involved with in the recent past.

Presently, Rico Blanco once again leads the pack with his passionate--if not, urgent--advocacy in strengthening the ever-growing Original Pilipino Music. Backed by Warner Music Philippines, Blanco has clearly surpassed his early reputation as Pinoy Rock Anthem-making machine and is clearly one of the foremost composers in the league today.

When Blanco recently released the single "Ngayon," the management of Tanduay Rhum realized that it was the perfect fit alongside their successful string of nationwide gigs with the country's top bands at this year's TanduayRhumRockfest, which boasts of the most important rock acts of the present and of the previous decade.


With the seed planted, both TanduayRhum and Warner Music Philippines finally present the release of Blanco's hit single"Ngayon" to be released first in this compilation of the finest OPM Rock tracks aficionados of all ages will surely look for: from 90s gems like Wolfgang's "Halik Ni Hudas" to new tracks from veteran bands like The Dawn ("Tibay Ng Pinas") and Siakol ("P.I."), to millennium hits like Chicosci's "Seven Black Roses," "Kamikazee's "Chinelas" and Franco's "This Gathering" and even current favorites from live staples like Urbandub, Typecast, Gloc 9, 6cyclemind and EbeDancel, this is definitely a blow-by-blow compilation like no other, and an impressive assembly of artists with an expected magnitude of great proportion.

In Blanco's "Ngayon," a line goes: "Ang nakaraan pasasalamatan, pero ngayon ang panahon," showing his homage to the songwriters and composers before him. This is both a plea for all OPM artists to unite, and a celebration of how far the music has come and evolved with the combined efforts of artists and corporations who believe in preserving and supporting our own.
