Last February 1, Red Horse celebrated Muziklaban’s 15th year. This 2014 Lunar New Year party introduced The Year of The Horse with a grand set up involving the fusion of legendary rock music with traditional classical instrumentation. A first in the entire existence of Muziklaban, this collaboration makes the whole experience at the grand finals celebration a historical one.
So when I first heard that Manila String Machine was performing with Razorback, Slapshock, A Music Theory and Ely Buendia for the Muziklaban Grand Finals, I recalled the last Nu107 Rock Awards in 2010 where they performed blindfolded amidst pole dancers. This orchestral group has also played with Urbandub for their Alive Out There 10th Anniversary concert and their constant supply of working with big names never ends, adding to the list Session Road, Stonefree and Six Cycle Mind.
