The live events industry — identified as “non-essential” — has been one of the hardest-hit sectors by the pandemic, being one of the first to shut down and one of the last to reopen. In the midst of this, a diverse band of six directors got together with a mission: to keep the show going in the new reality.
Their mission led them to the beautiful City of Manila, accompanied by seasoned production specialists and high caliber performers, and armed with the timeless music of Hotdog – the creators of Manila Sound.
In “Hinahanap-hanap Kita, Manila,” the directors bridge history with modernity, merge different music genres, and present familiar locations like you’ve never seen them before. When you tune in on December 13 at 8PM, keep in mind that this is not an ordinary online concert. This is a renaissance of the events industry, of tourism, and of Philippine entertainment – which, ask any Filipino, is an essential source of joy, with or without the pandemic.
