7th Annual Puerto Galera Reggae Festival

Pinoy Reggae legends once again gathered at the 7th Annual Puerto Galera Reggae Festival at Encenada Beach Resort in Puerto Galera last May 1, 2010.

One of those who took the “riddims” was the Tropical Depression which is also an annual band performer in the event. Tropical Depression, the band which popularized “Kapayapaan”, is spearheaded by founder and band leader Papadom, who is also the lead vocals and riddim guitar, and his longtime musical partner, Bong on lead guitar, together with Lala and Arlene on back-up vocals. The band has marked their legendary beat through headlining several concerts nationwide. They perform in the clubs, music festivals, in high profile shows, up to benefit concerts. But above all, they truly had the “Tropical Depression Infectious Island Riddim” that pumped up the enjoyment especially of the reggae festival’s visitors while enjoying beach football, windsurfing, barbeque, and a lot more until midnight.

Other Reggae bands and guests that joined the festival were Cocojam, the band which popularized “Lakambini” and “Ulap”, Turtle Club, Cool Laki, Grassroots, Kapis, Herb Culture, Wicked Tarsiers and one of the Pinoy great guitarist, Jun Lopito.

The 7th Annual Puerto Galera Reggae Festival is sponsored by Philippine Daily Inquirer (PDI), PEPSI, Globe Telecom, URC, San Miguel Beer, Starboard Philippines, The Provincial Tourism Office of Calapan City, Mayor’s Office Puerto Galera, Jam 88.3 and NU107.
