Coke Studio: Exciting, heartfelt, diverse music
Coca-Cola Philippines treated fans and music enthusiasts last Sept. 1 with a free concert that revealed the 13 out of 14 artists, who will join this season's Coke Studio. Dubbed as #CokeStudioHomecoming, this season might be a little bit of a surprise to the loyal fans since it will also feature, for the first time, a poet, a DJ and a Filipino K-Pop star to go with the usual OPM artists. Thirteen out of 14 artists have already been revealed, with the last artist completing the list unveiled soon. Here are the six things you have missed in last Saturday's #CokeStudioHomecomming: 1. The Original Pinoy Music vibe Coke Studio was specially created to showcase and bring back the love for Original Pinoy Music. During the launching, fans and attendees got the chance to experience what it really felt to be home when nine OPM icons shared their music.
The feels and “kilig” were abound when Indie-folk-pop band Ben&Ben performed their hit song "Kathang Isip," while performers Sam Concepcion, Khalil Ramos, and KZ Tandingan gave their fans a dose of rock and lively acts. Rappers Quest and Shanti Dope did some breathtaking lines, while spoken word genius Juan Miguel Severo reached out to the audience with his pained prose. The audience became livelier when IV of Spades delivered some grooves with their hit songs. Completing the event was famed DJ Patty Tiu, who was a hit with her party vibes. 2. Free-flowing of Coke For those who usually attend concerts of their favorite singers and performers, being thirsty while watching performances is their worst enemy. In Coke Studio's case, this wasn't a problem. Unli-Coke and unlimited water bottles were available in every corner.
3. IG-worthy lyric-light displays For the Instagram-conscious who wanted to take some selfies and shots, “Instagram-mable” lyric-light backgrounds were a show stealer.
5. Moments with the artists Before the official event, early birds got the chance to take some photos and interact with their favorite artists. Some artists also went to their corresponding lyric-light displays and took some shots with them.
More than that, during their performances, the artists were also able to give what their fans wanted when they sang for and with their fans in the crowd. 6. Interactive booths and amazing freebies Lastly, an event as superb as this one won't be complete without the booths and freebies for the amazing fans who spent their rainy Saturday afternoon with Coke. Fans lined up at the photobooths to bring home a souvenir. Freebies like fans and pencil cases were also given to the attendees. With their fun and success launching, Coke Studio promises to make this season more exciting, heartfelt and more diverse than the first season. Coke studio will be airing the first episode on Sept. 16 at 11 a.m. on its new home, ABS-CBN. You can also watch the latest episode every Sunday and catch the online stream on Coke Studio PH YouTube channel.
