Break out your bellbottoms and take a trip back in time to the Filipino disco songs of the Manila Sound, a musical genre that emerged in 1970s Filipino nightclubs and has seen a resurgence in recent years. Inspired by American disco, funk, and pop, Manila Sound mixed Filipino musicality, catchy melodies, and a laid-back style to create what some call the Golden Age of Pinoy music. The dance floor will be open, so get ready to boogie all night long!
“Back then, original Filipino pop culture was like a little brother of American pop culture... Suddenly disco blasted into the scene with this different sound and we said: ‘Why can’t we have our own Filipino disco?’
We tried to aim at the moon–and it went even further than that.”
