A lot is in store for us with the upcoming on-screen Wish FM – exciting new segments and the chance to meet the faces behind the voices of the DJs!

Filipino Band Dazzles in Brazil, Earns Rave from Popular Brazilian Band Vocalist

 

A Filipino band is creating online buzz as videos spread of their live performances at a frequented Filipino-Brazilian restaurant in Florianopolis, Brazil.

Milan (not the Italian city you are thinking of) is a rock band that has had four record labels in the Philippines. The band moved to Brazil in early 2016 and now regularly performs at Salut, a restaurant that serves Filipino and Brazilian cuisine.

Aside from the food that keep locals coming back, the band’s unique music covers and the energetic interpretation of its frontman, Hammilan “Milan” Pavoreal magnets especially music-loving customers. His out-of-the-box and almost spontaneous acts not only attracted and impressed ordinary customers, but even artists like Zeca Petry, lead vocal of Expresso, a famous Brazilian rock band of the 80’s.

Petry uploaded videos of Milan’s performances on Facebook. In one of the videos, he described how captivated he and the rest of the audience were, saying “I confess that I’ve never seen anything like this in restaurants in the city, and [it] deserves to be seen.” (See Zeca Petry’s upload here.)

The videos are fast spreading on Facebook. This one below had over 15,000 views.

 

Speaking as a Filipino myself, it gives me pride and joy to hear about fellow Filipinos being admired in the international and/or online community. Artists like Milan, prove to me that the Filipino has become a brand of talent across the globe, producing generations of music icons like rapper Apl D’Ap and Journey’s new lead vocalist Arnel Pineda.

In the video below, also uploaded by Zeca Petry, I can see why people are just blown away by the energy of their live performance.

 

I believe Filipinos make it big because Filipinos are something else. More power, Milan!
