In a rare event, 2 OPM icons Rico Blanco and Parokya ni Edgar’s Chito Miranda collaborated in one song to give OPM followers some delight and entertainment. The collaboration happened in Rico’s home and was made out of “trip”. Chito, in one of his tweets said, it was just an accidental recording when he went to Rico’s house and decided to record the song they want.
Although it was just a “trip-trip” session for the two, it resulted in a good music which gave the song a more fresh vibe. The 2 singers mashed-up 2 of their band’s hit songs, Rivermaya’s Panahon Na Naman and Parokya ni Edgar’s Harana.
The video was then uploaded by Rico on his RicoBlancoTV youtube channel which currently reaps praises and good feedbacks from its viewers. It was also well received in social media sites like Twitter and Facebook as netizens shared positive tweets and comments on the video.
Admittedly, I am big supporter of Rico Blanco and Parokya ni Edgar’s music and seeing them both in one video sharing their music is one reason to be grateful and be hopeful that OPM and Pinoy Pop Music is still so much alive. We just need to appreciate it more than foreign songs and those K-Pop phenomenons.
