Kulintronica is Radio Republic’s Daily Track for February 25th, 2014

So excited to be a Daily Track in Radio Repbulic’s 2014 calendar (see the profile here)!  I am not the first Filipino artist from outside the Philippines to be listed here, and I’m not even the first artist from California to be listed here, but I do believe I am the first kulintang player to be featured here.  I’m so grateful to be mentioned in the same lineup with OPM artists 6Cyclemind, Sugarfree, Gloc-9, Denise Barbacena, Uela Basco (of the Chilitees), Mishka Adams, Indio I, and Nouvul.

As mentioned in the article, I am a huge OPM fan and when I am in the Philippines I spend quite a bit of time seeking out new music and enjoying the vibrante Pinoy Rock scene in Manila.  Eraserheads’ “Aloha Milkyway” was my first OPM album; and their “Natin99,” Up Dharma Down’s “Bipolar,” and Kjwan’s “2StepMarv” were very influential to me and I had these in heavy rotation when I was first developing the Kulintronica sound.

Kulintronica featuring Waway Saway “River Clouds”

3 Dec

Now available on iTunes is Kulintronica featuring Waway Saway playing “River Clouds,” an ethereal and emotional instrumental written in the mountain ranges of Bukidnon and performed in San Francisco while Saway stopped over after his performance at New York City’s Lincoln Center.

Waway Saway is a Talaandig artist who builds wooden instruments by hand and creates paintings with sand, but was very comfortable when Ron started powering up and firing off machines and synthesizers when making music together.

Saway performed with Kulintronica at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, the Asian Heritage Street Celebration, and the Filipino Community Center in Fulton before going into Xubee Music studios to shoot the performance music video that eventually evolved into this full fledged record that also features John Roselada on keyboards.
