The first Cebu Music Creators Growth Summit aims to bring together songwriters/composers, singer-songwriters, bands, music producers, sound engineers, instrumentalists and music advocates alike for valuable conversations, tips and talks about working and being involved in the music community. Cebu is home to diverse talents in the arts, whether it be visual arts, theater, dance and music, often overlooked on a national level. In reality, we don’t really have to look far to find a wealth of talent and artists that have been quietly weaving their way throughout the years, creating their paths separately, but together cultivating and paving the way for the city’s music and arts community today.
These speakers are involved in the music community, both in the creative side or the business side, with each one having the shared goal and passion to help #GrowCebuMusic and the Cebuano arts community in general.
Get to know our lineup of speakers below:
- Composer, Music producer, Book writer/Author, the Visionary behind the Visayan Pop, Gugmang Giatay The Musical, and You’ve Been Facebooked The Musical

Cebu – A Destination for Music is a discussion on the possibility of co-creating a music industry that is deeply entrenched in and connected with Cebu’s unique local culture.

In The Visual Side of a Recording Artist, Kaloy will talk about the importance of Product Development as a recording artist.
