Goodbye, APO

Thursday, January 28, 2010 ·

Yes, folks, you read it right. The trio of Jim, Buboy and Danny puts an end to their 40 year group singing career.

The Apo (Apolinario Mabini Hiking Society) is one of the principal proponents of Original Pilipino Music (OPMs). They popularized songs such as "Kaibigan, Prinsesa, Salawikain, Batang-bata ka pa, and many others".

For those of you who would like to catch the APO's last Valentines Day perforamance, it will be held this February 13 at the SMX Venue, SM Mall of Asia.

"....I believe that as much as we are called to vocations and unions, we are also, at times, called to move on to other things. We have given our best years to APO, which has given us so much more in terms of the joy of performing, affirmation as artists, material blessings and stature"

- Jim Paredes, Writing on Air

ano daw rason? sayang at hindi na masusundan pa ang mga pinasikat nilang kanta...pero siguro may gagawin pa din nga lang solo solo na!

according to Jim (naks, feeling close), they just felt that they needed to move on to their different lives. kani-kanyang pagkakaabalahan.

but maybe, they will get back and do concerts pa rin once in a while. nobody knows..

Magaganda ang kanta ng 3 yan.

Nakapanghihinayang naman kung magso-solo na sila.

Of course, magiging iba na ang dating.

Hope for the better na lang ika nga.

Nadaan lang po.
