PAMPANGA -- Kjwan sent out their “Invitation” and the crowd responded.


The alternative Filipino rock band brought the house down and drew the largest crowd of a local performer on the first day of the 7107 International Music Festival (Feb. 22-23) at the Global Gateway Logistics City in Clark, Pampanga.

Frontman Marc Abaya ushered in the performance with their hit single
“Invitation,” which won the Ikon Asean regional music awards’ grand finals in Malaysia in 2007, to a raucous crowd of differing ages and races.

“To all the people here, thank you” Abaya said during their performance, the penultimate Filipino act, at the second stage of the music festival.

Abaya said that they were “really nervous” when they were informed that they would perform at the 7107, though they would perform on the second stage to give way to international acts at the main stage.

In between shots and cans of beer, and sticks of cigarettes, Abaya and Kjwan energized the crowd that gathered at the smaller second stage.


For the final performance, Abaya invited Audry Dionisio of General Luna and Enzo Marcos of Severo to play one of their first singles, “Lihim.” Inquirer.net
