Crank up the “Vigo” Volume
Challenging mainstream musical conventions, Vigo combines jazz, rock, traditional pinoy balladry (kundiman), modern beats, and a dash of folk to create their own unique sound.
With each artist having already forged their own reputations in the Manila soundscape, Vigo is more than just your run-of-the-mill garage band.
Vigo is a collective.
Each band member contributes his or her own distinct musical history and personality to create a sound that merges the traditional with the experimental. The result? A successful array of haunting melodies in honor of broken hearts, lost souls and fragmented memories.
Broken down and reconstructed, each song plays to the varied repercussions of the heart.
