SONGS
If you’re a Bisrock fan, relive the glorious days of Cebuano music industry. Listen to the popular songs like ‘Tsaeh’, ‘Ang Tigulang’, ‘Inday’, titular ‘Gugmang Giatay’ and other songs you missed from the previous decade.

Official Music Video of Vispop Songs You Will Surely Love

We’ve heard 18 songs from Visayan Pop (Vispop) Music Festival from 3 seasons, and some of these Vispop songs have actually hit the top spot in several local radio station countdowns. Isn’t it great to know that Vispop has successfully filled the gap of some Manila-based music artists! 
The history of Vispop is that Jude Gitamondoc, the brainchild behind this music campaign, wanted to let everyone know that Original Pilipino Music (OPM) isn’t just about the Tagalog songs. The vision of Vispop is create hit songs in the local tongue, Cebuano or Binisaya in general. 
Fast-forward to three years after the first Vispop in 2013, we now have several songs that are played in various radio stations and media outlets, most especially in the social media.
Interestingly, social media played a major role in the success of Vispop. The new media format was able to reach a wider market in no time. Imagine, after an hour posting the official lyrics of Vispop songs online, thousands of people are alre…

Vispop: Ang Tingog sa Bag-ong Bisaya

Sa panahon nga halos matag butang nahisuwat ug madunggan sa Iningles, misikat ang KPop (Korean Pop) sa atong nasod. Mga batan-on nga nagdako sa pinulongang Iningles nanag-awit sa mga kantang Kinoryano ang liriko ug pipila lamang nila ang nakasabot gyod sa ilang gipangtabi. Ang ilang playlist sa Spotify (usa ka app alang sa pagpaminaw og musika) napuno sa langyawng mga playlist nga sagad KPop o mga mang-aawit sa Amerika. Sa laing bahin, komosta na sad kaha ang mga kantang nahisuwat sa pinulongang Sinugboanon? 

Kapin sa tulo ka tuig na ang minglabay dihang namugna ang Vispop nga gipasiugdahan ni Jude Gitamondoc. Sukad sa pagdaog sa kantang "Duyog" ni Jewel Villaflores, daw nabanhaw ang musikang Binisaya nga mihinay human sa kasikatan sa Bisrock nga gipangunahan na bandang Missing Filemon ni Insoy Niñal. Nasundan ang unang season sa Vispop ug midaog ang kantang "Labyu Langga" ni Jerika Teodorico, usa ka tinun-an sa Cebu Normal University. Ang iyang bespren nga nagtun…

When OPM and Technology Are Merged As One

In the days when foreign songs reign in the radio station countdowns and where the this generation rely their music choice on the internet, the future of OPM (Original Pilipino Music) may be at risk.

Yes, this generation idolizes Taylor Swift, One Direction, or even Justin Bieber. Yes, we know Sam Smith, Echosmith, and The 1975. Let us not forget that this generation also knows Himig Handog and Vispop.

Yes, I may have some weird taste of music. In fact, my Spotify playlist includes Vispop, along with other Cebuano songs, and Himig Handog, along with other songs in my #Hugot playlist.

Forget Taylor Swift ignoring Spotify. Spotify has been my daily source of good music. While writing this blog in the middle of the night, the #Hugot playlist from Spotify is playing in the background. It gives me the ability to turn my thoughts into words. Also, it helps me concentrate more.

OPM, BISROCK, and VISPOP
If we talk about OPM, all of us can always say these are Tagalog songs, but as Jude Gitam…
