Chavacano Songs (and Artists) are on a different level
We have no choice but to stan harder.
Can you believe that we’re breathing the same air as these artists? Yeah, me too.
Just recently, the Zamboanga Hermosa Festival or popularly known as Zamboanga La Hermosa Festival had successfully concluded. Albeit most of the events were conducted virtually due to the ongoing threat of COVID-19 pandemic and with mass gatherings temporarily halted, the event still pushed through.
One of the events that caught our attention was the Original Chavacano Video Music Festival 2020. Not only were we treated to a bunch of quality Chavacano songs but we were also introduced to some Chavacano artists that we’re all looking forward to seeing or hearing more.
While only a few of these songs are available on Spotify, you can still stream them on Zamboanga City Official YouTube’s account along with their music videos. Anyone out there who’s brave enough to organize a Coachella-like event with artists from all over Mindanao as the major acts? Okay, we’re manifesting.
Check out some of the best entries (at least for us though) of this year’s Original Chavacano Video Music Festival. Clue: some, if not most, of these music videos were created by Playground, co-founded by Kim Tayona whom we featured on Creatives on Q.
If it weren’t for COVID-19, we would have booked ourselves a flight to Zamboanga and enjoy the festival. Anyway, don’t forget to #StreamLocal and support local acts y’all.
