I couldn’t help but noticed a fresh surge of popularity for our very own VisPop or Visayan Pop not only in the Visayas region but also in the upper regions of the Philippines.
I know the Visayan songs are still very much in the mainstream especially in Cebu wherein BisRock is felt in bars, lounges, etc. and I am very proud that it slowly going places again especially to areas which don’t speak Bisayan and get its popularity back to where it belongs. I mean Visayan songs had its hay day during the 70’s like Matud Nila, Lagkaw, Rosas Pandan, etc. because of its witty storytelling and catchy, heartfelt & emotional tune. Good thing the organizers are having the yearly VisPop competition and celebrates Cebuano talents.
Here are some of the popular Visayan songs nowadays.
