CCP is looking for a "new sound" for the P-Pop block and it might be your chance

Feb 22, 2021 0 comments

The Cultural Center of the Philippines recently launched its newest series project called Kanto Kultura, and it's starting with a battle of the bands! 

 

Kanto Kultura is a project series that aims to provide an avenue for different forms of artistry such as music, broadcast and film, literature, theater, dance, visual arts, and everything in between.


The Search for a New Pinoy Sound


To jump-start the project, CCP is launching Kanto Canta, a songwriting and singing competition that calls for local talents out there to create new songs and new music that use indigenous musical instruments. 



In a world dominated by pop groups, CCP also aims to re-discover and empower the “new Pinoy sound” that can establish the Filipino identity in the competitive global market online— something that can eventually match the K-pop phenomena.


“Through Kanto Canta, we hope to discover our Pinoy sound that can parallel the phenomenon of K-pop,” says Nikki Junia, CCP Board of Trustees.


How to Join?

The online band competition is open to natural-born Filipinos who currently reside in the Philippines, 18 years old and above, and with no existing professional and commercial entertainment contracts.  


The submission period for the first quarter of Kanto Canta is from February 20 to March 20, 2021. From all the entries, pre-qualifiers will be chosen and posted in Kanto Kultura official social media pages. The top 15 finalists will be chosen and awarded with prizes worth Php150,000. The announcement of Quarter-Finalists is on April 3, 2021.
