When he entered the Metro Manila Popular Music Festival in 1978, Freddy Aguilar was nearly completely unknown; within weeks he was most likely the best-known musician in Manila, and he offers since consolidated that placement to become the very best known Filipino musician on the planet. The track that required him to such great levels, heard for the very first time in the 1978 competition, was “Anak,” a folk-rock ballad sung in the neighborhood tagalog language. They have since spawned 54 addresses in 14 additional languages. He consequently enjoyed great strikes with such singles as “Magdalena” and “Bayan Ko.” Before the launch of “Anak,” Aguilar cut his tooth peforming cover tunes and original materials for U.S. armed service staff stationed on the hawaiian islands. Never someone to shy from politics, he published several anti-Marcos tunes, including “Katarungang” and his “Bayan Ko” became the theme track for Cory Aquino’s anti-Marcos election marketing campaign in 1986.
