Looking back on 2007, I got to work with a talented vocal percussionist by the name of Leejay Abucayan. It was within 10 minutes of arriving at a show I was invited to at UCDavis called Rooted Movement, that the question was asked,
“You wanna collaborate?”
Within 1 practice in another room, we put together this 2 song medley that I didn’t know, would spark an experience that I have the privilege of having, present day.
Leejay is one of my best friends that I consider a brother til this day, and we have gotten the opportunity of sharing laughter, nostalgia, feel-good music, and messages that would make your momma wanna go to the show lol.
This video is our first ever collaboration together. Enjoy! :)
Yep. These songs started my obsession with Leejay x Passion performances, and for awhile, GLP.
the only thing left to wish for, is to see them perform live. but darn, it’s either they fly to Asia or i go to the states.
wonder if they have plans to perform in Asia soon? if they’re coming to the Philippines, i’m definitely going home for that.
Nalungkot ako bigla. Kanina, I had this brilliant idea of going to the beach.As in bigla lang. Tipong para bukas na kagad. At dahil baliw ako, tumingin ako kagad ng ferry tickets atsaka ng hotel room. Ayon, sakto meron! Sabi ko, ayos ‘to. Kasama na lang kulang. May nayakag naman ako. Kaladkarin din kse.
Pero nung magbu-book nako, bigla ko naisip: sa mga gantong pagkakataon, sino ba talaga yung gusto kong kasama?
Yung taong kahit umupo lang kami sa isang tabi makakahanap kami ng makakaaliw sa amin. At kung nde man, kami na lang mag-aasaran, may magawa lang. Yung tipong ipod or gitara lang pwede na. Yung alam kung kelan tatahimik at kelan mangungulit. Yung pwede mong kasama at katabi matulog na hindi ka pag-iisipan ng kung ano dahil alam naman niyang walang malisya.
Yung tamang baliw, tamang unggoy din. Yung pakikinggan at papatulan lahat ng ka-unggoyan ko pero nde niya ko iju-judge kse mas malaki shang unggoy kesa sa akin.
Ikaw, kelan ka ba ulet pwedeng kaladkarin?
I’m offended that you do not even bother to read, much less understand what I wrote. I made it as simple as I can.
And to add insult to injury, I am already speaking with you, yet you still don’t even try to understand what I’m saying.
It’s your job to make sure everything is in line yet you have this attitude of ‘I can’t be bothered.’
Don’t blame me if this doesn’t go out as well as planned. I’m already doing my share. What does it take to make you do yours?!
