DUBAI: Filipinos love music no matter where they are and that’s the reason Dubai hosts a couple of musical events every year, and this time UK Worldwide Group, through one of its companies Al Tayya Films, brings the biggest Filipino musical festival in the UAE which is scheduled to be held on November 15 and 16 in Dubai.

The two-day ‘Pinoy Music Jam 2018’ show will be held in Zabeel Halls 3 and 4 at the Dubai World Trade Centre with high-octane performances of singing divas and nostalgic numbers from famous bands . The objective of the multi-genre gig is to allow Filipinos in Dubai and the UAE to reconnect with their love and passion for their homeland’s music and to provide other ethnicities with a glimpse of how Filipinos celebrate the wonders of life through music.

Al Tayya Films (the Event Producer), along with Fluid Event (the Event Organiser), are bringing together 10 well-known music artists and bands from the Philippines to perform in the two-day musical festival. There’s an amazing opportunity to witness the best Filipino musicians in Dubai as they gear up for sensational performances. The concert is expected to attract around 20,000 Filipino music enthusiasts to witness the powerful performances.

The team carefully selected the popular award-winning artists and a great mixture of bands to enthral Filipinos. The musical festival will show some of the biggest Filipino performers Angeline Quinto, the Queen of Teleserye Themes; K Brosas, an actress, comedian, singer and television host of dual Filipino and American citizenship; and Kyla (the Queen of R&B), a Filipino R&B singer-songwriter, occasional actress and presenter.

Furthermore, the audience will see Manila’s indie-alternative rock band Autotelic; another alternative rock band from Manila Hale; Silent Sanctuary, a 5-piece Filipino rock band known for injecting classical instruments into their contemporary offering; alternative rock band Sandwich with the legendary lead vocalist Raymund Marasigan; indie folk/folk-pop band Ben&Ben; IV of Spades which was honoured to be New Artist of the Year by Myx Music Awards; and last but not the least, Parokya ni Edgar, which was formed in 1993 and the band is known for its original rock novelty songs and often satirical covers of popular songs both foreign and local.
