The Malasimbo Music and Arts Festival is slowly becoming a household name for festival-goers and musicians alike, and is quickly becoming an institution not only in the arts scene, but even in the field of ecology and conservation. In fact, for this upcoming festival, the organizers had pledged to plant a mangrove seedling for every ticket they sell, a move that has encouraged many artists, nature warriors, and common folk to participate: if not for the chance to help nature, but to experience a different kind of music and arts festival.
This year’s Malasimbo will feature artists from all over the Philippines as well as the world: with local artists like hip hop prodigy Curtismith and up-and-coming electronic musician Moophs, as well as international acts Lefto and Tennyson, it’s going to be an exciting weekend. However, for those of us wanting to be in touch with nature some more, there are other activities in store, such as a solar lamp-building workshop, which will all be donated to Mangyan families, as well as a Surat Mangyan workshop, detailing the art and writing technique of this pre-Hispanic syllabic script. Whatever you fancy—whether it’s music or art—there’s something worth going to this weekend at Mt. Malasimbo.
The Malasimbo Music and Arts Festival will be held in Puerto Galera this coming March 10-12. For more information the official website of Malasimbo. For every ticket sold, Malasimbo and d’Aboville will plant a mangrove seedling, and the proceeds will go to the conservation of both the culture and environment of Puerto Galera. See you there!
