On April 28, 2012 – the biggest street party music tribute will be happening at the 9th avenue in Boni High St., Bonifacio Global City as we celebrate this year’s EARTHDAY JAM!
EARTHDAY JAM, the musical marathon for Mother Earth, on its 12th year shows no signs of slowing down as it starts at 6 PM, with guitar donning, drum beating music ambassadors of Mother Earth in various genres as diverse as world music, alternative, rock, reggae and acoustic. Kicking off the festivities are salsa-samba El_Martinos drumbeaters whose performance segues to the Philippines premier Brazilian-fusion artist Nyko Maca with band Gafeiera.
These will pave the way for an exciting journey of various musical performances from folk guru Noel Cabangon to the reggae laced set of Peace Pipe, an internationally renowned group who has won several awards abroad including “Artist of the Year” from Zim Carib radio in New Zealand.
The pop-rock set will be dominated by women-fronted bands Imago, and jazz pinoy soul quartet, Sino Sikat. The rock-alternative scene, on the other hand, will bring in major bands, Kjwan, Mayonnaise, Radio Active Sago Project with witty frontman Lourd De Vera along with veteran artist-producer Lou Bonnevie.
Boni High St. regular habitués are out to get a dose of modern 60’s with Bloomfields and the 80’s babies will reminisce with True Faith’s long list of hits from “Perfect” to “Huwag Na Lang Kaya”.
Pop sensations Nina and Juris will dish out their hits while pledging to Mother Earth on breaks while pop-novelty act Tanya Markova delivers their string of hits including the fave “Picture Picture”. All these music are interspersed with environmental tips from various speakers representing “green” NGOS and various leading government agencies. Splashes of AVP’s & envi-music videos will also dominate the video screen as bands perform. There will be “advocacy” booths near the stage, fronted by DENR, Greenpeace, Tieza, among others that will be open to the public starting at 4pm showcasing various “green” products and various campaign enlistment.
Spearheaded by Philippine rock icon, Father Satur Neri recipient envi-artist Lou Bonnevie and creative honcho Toto Gentica with their production outfit Dimitri Productions, Earth Day Jam has grown to become the highly anticipated musical phenomenon it is today, raising comparisons to other “Unity through Music” type concerts such as Woodstock and Live Aid. Whatever the case, this talent-packed one night marathon of music and advocacy is sure to continue making waves in both the environmental and musical scene.
