Disclosure: We were media guests of the Malasimbo event. I wrote this article with my biases, opinions, and insights. 

P.S. The list of musicians includes international greats Alfredo Rodriguez, Jordan Rakei, June Marieezy, and the promising electronic music duo Tennyson; and local favorites Apartel, Jeck Pilpil & Peacepipe, Skarm, and Curtismith. Malasimbo's Silent Disco will surely be a unique, aural treat at the event, too, with the following names manning the booth: Lefto, Kristian Hernandez, Safi, Manolet Dario, and up-and-coming Marvelous, Rob Cudi, Chrys, Sky Dominique, Paul Romanoff, Bercel Reyes, Sky Dominique, Shannon Conrado, and Apree Ong.
