MANILA, Philippines – It’s only been two years since the members of pop-folk band Ben&Ben came together, and the group shows no signs of stopping.
Ben&Ben won listeners over with their song, “Tinatangi,” which earned them the second runner-up prize at the prestigious Philippine Popular Music Festival in 2016. Since then, the band has released their self-titled debut EP, opened for veteran musicians such as Noel Cabangon, and rightfully gained a following in the process.
Formerly known as The Benjamins, Ben&Ben is led by twin songwriters Paolo and Miguel Guico, performing alongside Poch Barretto on electric guitar, Jam Villanueva on drums, Agnes Reoma on bass, Patricia Lasaten on keyboards, Toni Muñoz and Andrew de Pano on percussions, and Keifer Cabugao on violin.
Here’s their Live Jam setlist:
