POSPORO(s) sets local music enthusiasts on fire on November 25 when Spanish and Filipino artists share the stage again in this series of concerts organized by the Embassy of Spain and the Instituto Cervantes de Manila with the support of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), a project aimed at showcasing indie music talents from both countries to give the two sides an opportunity to experience each other´s music.

After four incredible gigs in June, July, September, and October, MANEL and Sleep Kitchen take over the most eclectic match in our two-year-journey project to resume the coming together of musicians from the Philippines and Spain, making it possible to bridge the gap between differences in style, artistic forms and disciplines as well as distance.


El próximo día 25 de noviembre, POSPORO(s) vuelve a encender a los filipinos aficionados a la música. Artistas españoles y filipinos vuelven a compartir escenario en esta serie de conciertos organizados por la Embajada de España y el Instituto Cervantes de Manila, con el apoyo de la National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA). Un proyecto que muestra intérpretes de música independiente de ambos países, estableciendo la oportunidad de experimentar sus músicas respectivas.

Después de cuatro increíbles conciertos en junio, julio, septiembre y octubre, Manel y Sleep Kitchen se hacen cargo del encuentro más ecléctico de nuestro proyecto de viaje de dos años, reanudando la reunión de músicos de Filipinas y España, y permitiendo salvar la brecha entre sus diferentes estilos, formas artísticas y disciplinas, así como la distancia.





MANEL is one of the most relevant contemporary bands in the Spanish scene. Their exquisite variety of musical repertoire, navigating between pop and folk along with deep narrative wit, have brought Manel to top the Official Spanish Charts several times. With their four records, the quartet of Barcelona is already part of the great tradition of excellent music sung in Catalan, where the big names of the “cançó” have always operated as popular craftsmen, offering a message that reaches all social layers, generational fringes, and geographical origins. The narrative flow of their compositions transits by the daily emotion, the nostalgia and the future at hand, in a universe full of characters that move between the real and the imagined. After becoming the first pop act ever to reach the #1 of the Official Spanish Charts singing in Catalan in 2011, the band did it again twice –in 2013 with the release of their third album “Atletes, baixin de l’escenari” (2013) and then, in April 2016, with their fourth, “Jo competeixo”. With “Jo competeixo”, Manel made a clear turn towards the contemporary pop that the band will offer at their Manila concert.
