A MYX Magna award for Apo

It’s MYX Music Awards time again. Time to vote for your favorite hitmakers and bestow on them that now much-coveted MYX trophy. We will know who the most deserving ones are during the awards ceremonies, to be held on March 15 at the AFP Theater.

Aside from the usual Favorite categories fans vote for, MYX also gives out the prestigious Magna Award. This honors artists for their outstanding contributions to Pilipino music. Last year’s choice was Megastar Sharon Cuneta. This time around the Magna will go to the Apo Hiking Society. There is no question that Jim Paredes, Danny Javier and Buboy Garovillo deserve this one. Aside from being one of the prime movers of the Manila Sound in the ’70s, this trio is hot again these days.

This is thanks to the KAMInAPO MUNA album where some of today’s most popular artists pay tribute to the Apo by performing its songs. The album is a huge hit. In fact, it has spawned two other albums. One is the limited edition package with the KAMInAPO MUNA CD, plus the digitally-remastered original recordings of the same songs by the Apo themselves. The other one features music videos and footage of the KAMInAPO Muna concert.

Great! But the best thing about the success of these Apo albums is that these have revived interest in the Manila Sound. This term refers to the spate of original works and the big number of artists who helped make the late ’70s one of the most prolific periods in the history of Philippine pop music.
