ASIN – Asin himig ng pag-ibig – 2009 Album

Asin (sometimes stylized as ASIN) is a Pinoy folk rock band from the Philippines. They started as a trio in the late 1970s before becoming a quartet, and was originally known as the Salt of the Earth. “Asin” means salt in Filipino language.

Asin was the first group to incorporate Filipino indigenous instruments into pop/rock music.[4] They also studied Filipino tribal music and did what they could to be true to the origins of the music. Instead of plagiarizing the indigenous music, they set about educating people about respecting the origins of the music and representing it with agreement from the tribal sources.

Although Asin admittedly did not set out to be a political band, their songs most of which have themes of loneliness and longing, reflected the tumultuous undercurrent of the seventies in the Philippines under President Ferdinand Marcos. Sometimes their recordings were deemed subversive and confiscated, while other times they were considered patriotic and the band is occasionally invited to play at the Presidential Palace.

‘Mga Awitin Ng Bayan Kong Pilipinas’ is their 1984 album which is composed of cover songs they did in tribute to old Philippines songs. So yes, this album is NOT originally by Asin. I will be uploading every alum by Asin because their music is not readily available online like it should be. More people from around the world need to hear Asin! Yes, I know they’re kinda different in comparison to what I generally upload, but in a way.. They’re not.

Asin is from the Manila Sound movement from the 70s Philippines which is also known as the “Bright Side of the Martial Law Era”, you could say they’re similar to CCR and Buffalo Springfield trying to shine some light in when the Vietnam War was painting an ugly picture for the world to see. Asin is a very positive and lifting band who just needs to be heard by more people.

Juan De La Cruz Band – SCE Himig Natin – 2008 ALBUM

The Juan de la Cruz Band was a Filipino rock group formed in 1968[1] that pioneered what became known as Pinoy rock. Founding guitarist Wally Gonzalez credits his fellow founding member, drummer Edmund Fortuno (a.k.a. “Bosyo”), as having introduced the band’s name. In December 1970, the band was lauded for headlining the first open field rock festival in the Philippines. In 1971, they released their first album as a quintet, and thereafter gained momentum when it performed in a rock opera with the Manila Symphony Orchestra, the first production of its kind in the country. Juan de la Cruz reinvented itself in 1973 as a power trio and rose to stardom as the premier rock band in the Philippines.
