Noel Cabangon not bothered by new singers

“I also really want to learn from young artists.” Entertainment ( Article MRec ), pagematch: 1, sectionmatch: 1 If given the chance, Noel looks forward to collaborating with artists who really create music like Davey Langit and Yeng Constantino. Noel shared his recent stint in Coke Studio gave him the chance to collaborate with 22-year-old rapper Curtismith who impressed philanthropist Richard Branson with his performance during the latter’s visit in Manila. “It was a very unique collaboration since he is a rapper and I am a folk singer and if you notice the combination is unique and I’m happy with the outcome.” Curtismith, Noel related, sang the chorus of his original composition Kanlungan before he proceeded to rap. “Ako naman, I interpreted his song Jus Chillin’ and add melody to it.” These days, Noel is busy promoting Byahe Pa Rin, the third installment in his Byahe album series. It features his version of well-loved OPM modern classics like Tadhana by Up Dharma Down, Hari ng Sablay of Sugarfree and Kahit Kailan popularized by South Border. “The album is called Byahe Pa Rin because it is composed of songs that became hits of the ‘80s, ‘90s and, of course, there are songs included for the present (generation),” explained Noel who admitted that OPM is very much in a challenging position given the new platforms that exist nowadays. “And even if your songs are on social media and you have YouTube and everything, you are also competing with foreign artists. Even our fellow Pinoy, di naman laging nakikinig ng OPM, sometimes, there’s this need of encouraging them (to listen to OPM).” Still, Noel believes it is every artist’s advantage to have his songs uploaded on different platforms. “That’s a good chance to sell and it’s also an advantage to people to have a lot of choices.” And while streaming of music has become a norm, Noel believes that there are still many who prefer to invest in a physical copy. No wonder, he included in his album two original compositions which he deemed to be a hit to millennials. They are Missing You and Umiibig.
