Last Friday, May 13th , at the Copernicus Center, SamaSama Project opened for Timeless, The concert of Philippine’s Best Selling Artist of all time, Miss Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, together with the soul singer, Jaya, produced by Diamonds Production in cooperation with Star Media and BG Productions.
Their performance was phenomenal! The group played three songs, the first song was a mash-up of Home by Philip Phillips and a traditional folksong Ay Ay Salidumay and the second song was bluesy rendition of Philippines-based band Freestyle’s So Slow . They ended their energetic set with a latin classic, Chance for Romance. The band did an amazing performance in playing their rendition of the songs. Lou EllaRose made a big impact with her astounding and skyrocketing vocal range left the audience at the edge of their seats!
SamaSama Project plays a mix of Filipino traditional folk and contemporary music. The band led by Baron Lloyd Cabalona, arranger, drummer and a multitalented musician and actor and commercial model, Lou EllaRose on lead vocals. Together with other talented members Ran Sevilla on rhythm guitars, Gerry Lomotan on bass guitar, John Kniker on lead guitar, Rosemarie Tom, Mary Ann Espanola and Ellen Delarosa as back-up vocals.
Indeed, it was the biggest concert of the year and SamaSama Project truly did an exceptional performance.
