Music has always been deeply ingrained in the Filipino soul. The pre-Hispanic Filipino had music for every aspect of life, from birth to death and everything in between. Their music, along with their traditional instruments, still lives on among the indigenous Filipinos to this day. Over the centuries, Philippine music evolved to become what it is today-- a unique blend of both Eastern and Western traditions, yet remaining, as always, a reflection of the hopes and frustrations, longings and dreams, and failures and triumphs of the Filipino.

From the oyayi to the kundiman to Manila Sound to OPM to alternative rock and hip-hop, the Encyclopedia of Philippine Music seeks to trace this evolution of Philippine music from its indigenous roots to its modern-day genres.

WikiPilipinas also pays tribute to the Filipino musicians and musical performers, many of whom have been recognized for their talent both locally and internationally. Cecile Licad, Atang de la Rama, Lea Salonga, Smokey Mountain, the Eraserheads, and Charice Pempengco are among them, and many others whose stories and music help to inspire us.

In this regard, Musika portal created a link to the newest OPM music site, AudioFilipino.org, offering music lovers a chance to enjoy free streaming of timeless OPM hits. It also boasts of an archive of old-fashioned songs of some of the country's most invincible artists and performers such as the Mabuhay Singers and Pilita Corrales, among others, as well as some of the Philippines forgotten voices and neglected classics. AudioFilipino aims to preserve and restore popular time-honored and vintage classics from kundimans of the 1920s to the Rock n' Roll era and the Disco and Manila Sound era. So enjoy and cherish the good old music of the past and be mesmerized once more as visitors listen to OPM classics.

WikiPilipinas invites every Filipino to visit and contribute to this encyclopedia. Help us tell the world about the depth of the Filipino love of music and the richness of the Filipino musical heritage.

Parokya ni Edgar

Parokya ni Edgar (literally, "Edgar's Parish") is a Filipino band that was formed in 1993 by a group of Ateneo high school students. The band is famous and most lauded for its original rock novelty songs and often satirical covers of famous songs. With several years in the music scene, it has transcended musical genres, varying styles from one to another - alternative rock to pop rock, funk to rapcore, and so on without leaving behind its trademark style of providing comic relief to their listeners.


Before Parokya ni Edgar

Naming themselves Comic Relief, the band members were originally composed of three vocalists and two guitarists - Chito Miranda, Vinci Montaner, Gabriel Chee-Kee, a certain Miko and Jerick...read more...
