WATCH: Ebe Dancel talks about ‘Sa Wakas’–the album that changed his life forever

January 23rd, 2018

Ebe Dancel, the former lead singer of the Filipino rock band ‘Sugarfree’ that disbanded in 2011, played an all-Sugarfree induced set last January 16, Tuesday at 12 Monkeys Music Hall. The event was a tribute to the notable success of the band’s first album, Sa Wakas, marking its 15th anniversary.

Launched in 2003 at Freedom Bar, Sa Wakas contains 12 tracks featuring their hit singles “Telepono” and “Mariposa.” Soon enough, their song “Burnout” also became popular earning them the Best New Artist, Album of the Year, and Best Alternative Recording awards during the NU Rock Awards of the same year. They were also awarded as the Best Rock Recording for “Mariposa” during the Awit Awards.

InqPOP! got to chat with him before his show and Dancel shared his thoughts about the album. Watch the exclusive interview below:

Second and final leg. Please read the post carefully. Yes, still playing an all-sugarfree set. UPDATE: all tables were reserved and paid for within a few hours (wow thank you). HOWEVER, the venue will accommodate as many walk-ins as it can. See you
