Product Notes

About this CD/DVD- 'Manila Nights' is a collection of Tagalog and English line dance, pop and traditional ballads with lyrics based on overseas experiences of Filipinos set in rhumba (Di-Bat Sabi Mo?), swing (Manila Nights), Line Dance (Hala Bira, Balikbayan Slide, and Lovestep/rap) beats. A must-have for the household as the DVD can be set to play in the living room to liven up a party. The ballads reflect on the lives of many who could not be with their loved ones abroad. About the Artist- Born and raised in the Philippines, Noel Gamboa fuses ethnic inspired grooves with western and latin influences in the "Manila Nights" dance events he hosts in New York City. A practicing University Architect in the US, he began guitar playing and composing music as early as age 11. His abiding love of Filipino music has set him on a personal quest to inspire "euphoric patriotism" in his "kababayans" (countrymen) through original Filipino dance music. Among his many accomplishments to date, Noel composed "Giliw" for Martin Nievera and was a front act for Gary Valenciano, the two leading "Pinoy" pop idols of his generation. The majority of songs in this album are inspired by actual immigrant experiences,and Noel has chosen to transform traditionally ballad-based Pinoy pop into it's most expressive physical form by combining it with line dancing, currently one of the hottest dance trends among Filipino immigrant communities and balikbayans (returnees) around the world. The result is a highly infectuous brand of pop dance that is uniquely Filipino and uniquely Noel's.
