Former Philippine 'Jukebox Queen' Amapola To Rerelease Her Works

Former Philippine 'Jukebox Queen' Amapola To Rerelease Her Works

New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Infinity Productions) AMAPOLA, (also known as Amapola Cabase) winner of the Awit Award for Best Female Singer in the Philippines, is currently planning to record all of her works. Currently, there is no cohesive discography available for fans who want to own all of her music. AMAPOLA wishes to rectify this by re-recording all of her works.

AMAPOLA said in an interview on July 11th, 2011, "I think the most musical and creative I can be is when I finally record all of my own material." She continued, "I also have this dream of not only writing and singing my own songs but also playing all the instruments in the track. Now that would be a plan, wouldn't it?"

AMAPOLA was known as the "Jukebox Queen" due to her ability to fill the jukeboxes with hit singles in the '70s. One of her hit songs from the soundtrack of the film "Kapantay Ay Langit" won for her and composer George Canseco, the award for "Song of the Year" at the Manila Film Festival.

A lot has changed in the music industry during the decades-spanning career of AMAPOLA. In particular, AMAPOLA believes that the Internet has changed the musical landscape more than anything else has. According to AMAPOLA, "The main difference between then and now? The internet! Nowadays, anyone with a computer can launch a full time career!"

She is careful to add, however, that while it is easy for anyone to use the tools offered by the Internet in order to share their music, no social media tool can replace pure talent. of performers. While AMAPOLA laments the fact that pop music melodies are not nearly as beautiful now as they were in the '70s and '80s, she is glad that singers can become their own record companies.

In fact, it is the Internet and the newfound access to fans that has given AMAPOLA the inspiration to rerecord all of her music.

AMAPOLA comes from a musical family, and believes both her family and her cultural heritage influenced her music growth. "On any given night (in Cebu City), one could hear young men strumming guitars, drinking "tuba" and howling the night away." Her father, Mahnee Cabase, taught her eight musical instruments including the bass, drums, and the violin, and she was surrounded by music during her entire childhood.

This musical bond translates into a bond with the Filipino for AMAPOLA. "When I witness Filipino singers and musicians perform anywhere in the world, my heart literally soars and it truly inspires me to do my best. Briefly, one may leave behind our Filipinos at home but the Filipina in me will always be constant."
