Bamboo to Hold Free Concert in Dubai on Oct 12

‘Tis the season for Pinoy music lovers! Aside from Pinoy Music Jam 2018 in Dubai and One Music X Abu Dhabi in the capital — both happening this November — there’s another concert taking place next week! And it’s free. You read that right… FREE!

According to Dragon Mart’s website, singer-songwriter Bamboo will be performing live at Dragon Mart 2 on 12th October 2018. This would be the second time this year that he performs in Dubai, as he was also at the Fluid Jam 2018 Music Fest a few months ago.

Dragon Mart 2 Features Pinoy Music Artists

But wait, there’s more! Bamboo will be joined by another popular musician, Barbie Almalbis. Let’s get to know them a little bit more… although we’re sure that devoted fans already know this!

Born as Francisco Gaudencio Lope Belardo Mañalac (what a mouthful!), Bamboo first became known as the lead singer of the Filipino rock band, Rivermaya. Every 90s kid is familiar with their songs, “214,” “Himala,” “Kisapmata,” and many other hits. Later on, he embarked on a solo career and brought us the smash hits “Hallelujah,” “Tatsulok,” and many more!

Aside from his distinct, powerful voice, Bamboo is known for his energetic performances. Indeed, he is one of the Philippines’ most unforgettable rock icons!

Meanwhile, the lovely Barbie Almalbis first stepped into the spotlight as the lead singer of the band Hungry Young Poets, and later on, Barbie’s Cradle. Eventually, she also pursued a solo career and produced best-selling albums and hits. She is best known for her sweet, melodious voice… remember her singing the soundtrack for “Tabing Ilog” (another 90s favourite)?!

Without further ado, here are the event details:
