Sofar Sounds: Magic in Live Music

A secret gig with intimate sets + cold beer + any quiet room around Manila means it's a Sofar night. 

SofarMNL has produced almost 20 shows with 60+ local artists and a Sofar+ festival. I personally love the Manila audience cause they're really engaging and respectful to the artists and the concept.  But my favorite part? The MNL team! Made up of artists, musicians, and active members of the local music scene, the local Sofar team is one of the most dedicated group of people (who started out as strangers!) I've worked with. And all of it for the love of music and the community we've built. It's been three years working with the SofarMNL team and even I am still amazed with every show.
