Good vibes & intentions with Kala's RockEdition CDEP

This 5 track CD-EP was released around 2004 with the purpose of informing people about the work and projects of RockEd Philippines. This release is a combination of Funk, Soul, Rock, Acid Jazz and 70s sounding fusion...all jumbled up, fused together, blurring musical genres but at the same time presenting some pretty funky and modern, catchy songs. Kala currently released their full length debut album this year called "Manila High" but not too many people know that they were playing their cosmic grooves for several years now.

The band members are JP Tanchanco aka "Funkfly" on guitar, Raymond Daylo aka "D'lo" on drums, William Gabaldon aka "Gabal" on bass, Mike Grape aka "Grape" on vocals and harmonica and Brian Tanchanco on keys,synth,back-up vox. Their influences ranges from a lot of artists from the 60s to the 90s...from Led Zeppelin, James Brown, Warren G, Earth,Wind & Fire, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Phoenix, Jamiroquai, etc. etc. Please visit the band's website

Also note the the tracks on the latest album are slightly different versions than the initial recordings on this EP.

Hi Andy,
subtle differences lang....siguro yung ibang tracks....mas mahaba ng konti sa album, especially sa intro portions, I think one or two songs are the same or almost the same, it was early in the morning when I was listening to them so baka hindi masyadong na-compare. =)
Check it out.
