SynopsisCalling all you music aficionados and disco dancers, get down to the Philippines` disco sounds of the late 70s and early 80s, including the very popular - Manila Sound. On the 6th of this October, NYU Abu Dhabi will see some of the biggest performers from the Philippines like Spanky Rigor and Roger Rigor, co-founders of VST & Company, and The Union [featuring Jet Montelibano (formerly of Music & Magic), Jessica Casas (formerly of Something Special), Nino de Jesus, Jo-ann Visitacion, Fulton Montoya] as they make their UAE debut and lead a celebration of Filipino Disco. Rooted in an amalgam of American soul, funk, and disco origins, this euphoric dance music mixed with Filipino melodic traditions, is a concert filtered through the warm glow of the Manila Sound.
Not just this, after the perfect Filipino Disco night, the audience gets a chance to sing and dance to some popular tunes from the rich and groovy Disco Manila catalogue in a special live band karaoke, on Friday 7th October.
