Glad to have shared the stage with some awesome Filipino American talent!
From Piyesta Pinoy Facebook : ......The event could not have been complete without another group of festival mainstays, Samasama Project, with versatile musician Baron Cabalona fulfilling a New Year's challenge from wife and front woman Louella Cabalona by playing a double bass for the first time. Louella showed off jazz scat chops and Ranran Sevilla's inventive guitar rounded out the trio acoustic set of folk favorites and OPM (Original Pilipino Music) in the style distinctly Samasama Project, reminding all that a festival of Piyesta's caliber is all about Filipino pride and quality.
