Makibaka and the Makabayan dancers

Two firsts in our performance of “Makibaka” at the second National Convention of Makabayan. This was our (me, Pol and Tony) first time to perform Makibaka with Ka Tony on drums and not on guitar. Ka Tony by the way played the lead guitar in the recorded version of Makibaka, and in most of the song’s live performance. This was also the first time that a live performance of Makibaka was accompanied by a fiery flag-bearing dance routine courtesy of the Makabayan dance troupe.

This was held at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines gymnasium last September 7, 2012. Video is a combination of footage taken by Marion and Lolo Mon.

Makibaka Live! at the Hard Rock Cafe Makati

Last March 13, 2012 was our first ever performance at Hard Rock Cafe Makati. And though we didn’t win the 2nd qualifying battle of Hard Rock Rising, it was a memorable experience performing Makibaka with great intensity. Salamat sa pagkakaisa at pakikibaka Plagpul & Tony Palis! And while we’re still waiting for Munting Media’s video footage, heto muna po ang kuha ni Lolo Mon.
