Alfa : One Night in Makati

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Alfa Garcia is coming to Makati, and you're all invited! This is your chance to get close and personal with this up and coming US-based artist. ADMISSION IS FREE! 

A wonder on the ukelele, a witty lyricist, and a real lady with a deliciously soulful and sultry singing voice, Alfa has made her mark on the US indie scene and is seeking to reconnect with her roots and the local music lovers here in the Philippines.

Alfa will be sharing a couple of songs from her newest album, and then entertaining a few questions from the audience after her set. 

With an alluring voice and disarming honesty, pop-folk artist Alfa can make a bustling room stop. Indie Music Reviewer has compared this multi-instrumentalist to "a clear blue sky and a candid soul" that begs the listener to "hear what else she has to say."

Coming Home: Alfa Promotional Video

Born in the Philippines to a family of musicians, Alfa got an early start in piano and violin, playing nationally with the Children's Orchestra Society of New York. Alfa's music has received honorable mention from the New York Songwriters Circle and won Grand Prize at Kollaboration Acoustic 2009, a competition highlighting Asian-American talent.

Alfa's irresistible melodies and smart lyrics have landed her music in E!'s "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" & MTV's "Friendzone," while Music Connection Magazine listed this Philippine-born songwriter in its Top 25 Music Critiques of 2012, noting: "Fans of Ingrid Michaelson and Sara Bareilles will savor this artist."

Her latest album "World Go Blue" has climbed US radio charts including the CMJ Top 200 and the Top 100 College Radio Chart.
