VOILA! YOU FOUND US!
RORO MUSIC - BOHOL'S NEWEST INDIE PROJECT!
We hope this simple blog expresses in some shape or form what we are trying to portray: sharing with you this exciting adventure we're currently undertaking that was almost totally unplanned, to say the least, lest it's been lurking around in our subconscious without us even knowing it. Needless to say, the very moment it dawned on us the direction this diversion (hobby) was leading us to, 'twas almost an automatic progression for us to jumpstart the engine in search for a better understanding of what the implications are this so-called songwriting partnership got us into. Sometimes we wonder if this is just plain coincidence or maybe some kind of providence? We'll see!
WHAT AND WHO IS RORO MUSIC?
"Roro Music is a combination of two musical minds - Roel & Romeo - both of whom are true Dagohoy-blooded Boholanos. It's a collaboration founded on years of friendship, common life experience and shared interest but whose current musical quest and aspiration go beyond the limits and boundaries of some home-grown and culturally-embraced influences of the present time (pop culture), in pursuit of something new and unfamiliar, yet very special (we're going country!), in the hope of breaking new grounds (for future performing artists), creating fresh perspectives (for budding songwriters) and laying new platforms for many ipodcasters (modern music lovers) to enjoy, celebrate and tread on in the many years to come."
Year 2009 is a trailblazing year for us as we embark on a new musical venture we've never tried before - collaborative songwriting and self-publishing. It's a dream we never dared explore in years past when our minds were clear, pure and innocent (LoL), and our imaginations, ambitions and dares were kinda at its peak (huh!). Even though we're both musicians who grew up - and played sports - together, and whose passion for music is beyond anyone's knowing and description, our respective musical journeys have never really crossed paths before except at informal and not-so-formal gatherings (e.g. barkada gatherings, music club gigs, etc) where one played and the other appreciated, in company of boyhood friends. Thirty something years, as a matter of fact, such life's arrangement seemed to be the soup du jour of a lifetime between us from years 1976 to 2008. Then 2009 came and all of a sudden and boom! (forgive us for sounding too cocky and ambitious, hahaha), but like an old friend said at one time, an "Ala-Lennon-McCartney/Bernie Taupin-Elton John" meeting of minds and hearts almost instantaneously became the rule of the day and of our newfound fervor... writing songs together!
