It was a rainy Sunday afternoon but the shoppers at Powerplant Mall was in for a treat as Cooky Chua, together with the The Manila String Machine serenaded them with old Manila hits that so pleased the crowd.
The performance was one of the Linggo Ng Musikang Pilipino (LMP) record-breaking 70+ music showcases held in various venues all over the country.
Presented by Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang-aawit (OPM) and National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), the multi-platform celebration succeeded in its commitment to offering a broad spectrum of Filipino music talents to a diverse audience, transforming public spaces such as malls and train stations into music performance spectacles and curating top-notch performances in bars, concert halls, theatres, and multimedia outlets.
Cooky Chua’s performance with The Manila String Machine bring back nostalgic songs that was enjoyed by the crowd a standout mini concert from the get go. The combination of alt-rock and jazz songstress Cooky Chua and The Manila String Machine is a soothing but elegantly produced number that instantly wowed both the crowd and the curious bystanders in the mall.
With a well-curated music program and a bigger fifth year run, Linggo Ng Musikang Pilipino is poised to become a staple multi-genre festival with longer staying power and undeniable impact. Here’s hoping for more years of support and love.
