UNDSCVRD SF Presents All Star Billing of Emerging Talent From The Philippines and Launch of New Music Label in Filipino Cultural District


On Saturday September 15th, UNDSCVRD SF takes on their most ambitious music line up to date. Presenting an all star billing of the freshest emerging talent from the Philippines. Singers, producers and musicians that represent the modern pulse of Manila music today, with a focus on the unique, future soul style emerging from the Philippine underground. Featuring live performances from Manila based artists in their first U.S appearance: BP Valenzuela, Rhxanders, CRWN and Lustbass will each have singles on the release of Manila Rising, a debut EP compilation by newly launched San Francisco/SOMA Pilipinas based music label Barkada Worldwide. The label and compilation come from UNDSCVRD SF’s Music Curator, Mark Herlihy.

It’s been a dream to start a music label right here in San Francisco’s Filipino Cultural District. From Manila to the Bay, we’re featuring emerging musicians that rep the modern pulse of contemporary Filipino music. With its diverse cultural makeup (Malay, European, American, Arabic and Asian) and harsh socio-economic and political realties. Manila is fertile ground for developing cutting edge music and art. Modern Philippine music has a refreshing originality that is on par, if not surpasses any country in the world; and deserves its recognition amongst the best modern musical cultures.
— Mark Herlihy

The Manila Rising album will be available on all digital media platforms, and physical copies at the UNDSCVRD night market on Saturday, September 15 from 4p-10p. Admission is free, and is a family-friendly event. For more info visit www.undiscoveredsf.com
