i was right- UGAT rocked!

in celebration of the glorious decades in pinoy music history, great pinoy folk rock artists performed together for the first time in a one-night concert dubbed ugat: ang himig natin

the concert, (december 3rd at the araneta coliseum) featured the juan dela cruz band (mike hanopol, pepe smith, wally gonzales), lolita carbon of asin, sampaguita, heber bartolome (and banyuhay), and florante (certified pasimpleng comic-walang kupas). 

manong gary granada and noel cabangon (to my delight) were also there. as mike hanopol puts it : "one of the great things that we have to do is to make sure that when we fade out, we will be able to pass the great music that we had then to the next generation". here's their opening medley [thanks to iamwalrus] . 

these pinoy icons performed their signature hits - himig natin, bonggahan, laguna, masdan mo ang kapaligiran, pagbabalik, itanong mo sa mga bata, tayo'y mga pinoy, nena, handog, mabuti pa sila, kahit konti, kanlungan, and titser's enemi#1 among others. they really rocked the big dome with audience (us included!) dancing and singing with them all throughout. 

surely, that was a night i'd forever cherish!
