IN PHOTOS: OPM artists unite for peace and raise funds for Marawi


Music has saved us during some of the most difficult times in our lives. We may listen to different songs in different genres and languages, but we can all agree that music makes us all feel happiness, sadness, and peace.

Over 30 OPM artists under Jampack Music have come together to make music for peace through a series of gigs dubbed as Jam for Peace. The musical show for a cause aims to raise funds for those who are affected in the ongoing conflict in Marawi.

The first of the five bar tours kicked off last August 16 at Historia Boutique Bar and Restaurant with bands including Sileph, Monolog, Tanya Markova, Sponge Cola, Rocksteddy, and The Itchyworms.

Sileph was first up on stage and performed their latest single “Walang Pakialam” with other songs like “Di Mo Lang Alam” and “Losing Time.”

Monolog went for a more upbeat sound and a hint of humor in their lyrics with their relatable song “Ayala Ave” which they dedicated “sa lahat ng kumakayod.” They also sang “Boldstar” and “Mag-isa Na Naman.”

Tanya Markova, in their iconic painted faces, performed their hit songs “Hello Hello Hello,” “Linda Blair,” “Picture Picture,” and “Disney.”

The Itchyworms dedicated the night for peace and to the victims in Marawi. The crowd sang along to some of their hits like “Ayokong Tumanda,” “‘Di Na Muli,” “Love Team,” “Gusto Ko Lamang,” and their recent collabs with Ely Buendia “Pariwara” and “Lutang”.
