Bayang Barrios's Malaya album launch will take place at the '70s Bistro, Anonas Extension, Quezon City on May 31, 2013. Guest artists for the 9 pm show include Joey Ayala, Cookie Chua, Gary Granada, Bullet Dumas and Lolita Carbon.



Filipino folk singer Bayang Barrios is set to release her newest album titled Malaya. Produced by Mayumi Records, her album consists of 12 tracks.

In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), the singer-composer shared that her latest album will focus on one general theme which is “peace.”

“Iisa lang ang direksyon na pinatutunguhan, ang usapin ng Kalayaan. Malaya sa pagpapahayag ng damdamin [at] malayang mabuhay ng sa paligid na maayos at maganda.”

When asked about the inspiration behind her newest album, Bayang replied, “Maraming inspirasyon din na dumarating at isa na dito ang mga totoong nangyayari sa pang araw-araw ng pamumuhay.

“Ito ang dahilan at nakakagawa ng mga awitin at nakabuo ng pang limang album.

“Isang magandang nangyayari din na makapag trabaho ulit sa mga nakasamang musikero noong nagsimula pa lang ako.

“Isang napakagandang panaginip na nagkatotoo.”

For her carrier single, Bayang Barrios covered “Gising Na Kaibigan” featuring Lolita Carbon. The song was originally perfoomed by the latter’s folk rock band called ASIN.

Bayang revealed, “Bata pang ako inidolo ko na siya [Lolita Carbon] at napakaling karangalan na mabigyan ng pagkakataon na makanta at ma-record itong likha niyang awitin.”

Aside from Lolita Carbon, Bayang also collaborated with local artists such as Joey Ayala, Gary Granada and Mike Villegas, among others.

Bayang shared, “Halos lahat ng kanta ay may ka-collaborte ako na artist like Joey Ayala with Bata Batuta [in] ‘Bathala’ and ‘Awit ng Mortal’ songs; Gary Granada with his song ‘Iisa;’ Lolita Carbon with the ‘Gising Na Kaibigan’ song; Popong Landero, a Davao-based artist; Mike Villegas with his song ‘Naghahari’ at marami pang iba.”

Given the opportunity, Bayang Barrios said that she would also like to collaborate with up-and-coming singers in the OPM scene.

“I like KZ Tandingan, she is also from Mindanao; Cathy Go who is also a good singer.

“I would love to collaborate with Gloc 9 kasi ang gagaling din ng mga likha niyang mga kanta.

“At marami pang baguhan na mga female artists ngayon na umuusbong na may sariling identity.

“Sana patuloy lang sa paggawa ng mga awitin na nakakapagbigay ng magandang mensahe para sa kabataan, sa bansa, sa ating kapaligiran at sa kapwa.”

With this album, Bayang Barrios aims to inspire more people as they listen to her music.

“Nananalangin na sana ay mapakinggan ng mas nakakadaming karaniwang tao at makabigay inspirasyon sa buhay buhay.”

Bayang Barrios' launch for her latest album Malaya will be held at the '70s Bistro, Anonas Extension, Quezon City this Friday, May 31. The 9 pm show will feature guest artists Joey Ayala, Cookie Chua, Gary Granada, Bullet Dumas, and Lolita Carbon.
