22 Tango Records, in partnership with Create Cebu, is kicking off the new year with a culmination of the recently concluded Grow Cebu Music School Tour with Grow Cebu Music Congress, an afternoon of panel discussions and conversations among music community influencers in anticipation of the second Grow Cebu Music Summit this June.

Happening this January 13, 2018, Saturday at A_SPACE Cebu in Crossroads Mall, Banilad as part of this year’s Crisscrossings: Creative Convergence 2018Grow Cebu Music Congress aims to spark awareness and enthusiasm for the music community, showcase the vision and present ventures of the different organizations, and elevate interaction between artist and listener.

The panel is a careful selection of organizations that represent the varied fields of music in Cebu. Aside from 22 Tango Records, it includes Sistemang PilipinoKadasig, and Bomba Press.

Panelists will take turns interacting with a moderator to discuss their respective organization’s efforts. It’s an opportunity for for them to share its purpose, past and current projects, as well as future plans to a wider audience including guests from the LGU, the private sector, and the creative community. It also hopes to serve as a springboard for the invited panelists to stay connected to each other and make the community grow and thrive. The program will close with performances by Vincent EcoMary Anchit, and Mother Folker with Sinfonia.

Grow Cebu Music Congress will then culminate with an Artist Showcase at 8PM right outside at the Crossroads grounds, featuring the best that homegrown music has to offer: Thinking ChairFonzySepia TimesCarlisleHoneydropMother FolkerWonggoys, and Coolie Dread and the Microphone Commanders (CDMC).
