Biography

From being a “jamming” group of visual and performance artists way back in 1989, Pinikpikan has now evolved into a music band that pioneers the world music scene in the Philippines. It is a multi-awarded band that fuses indigenous and modern music styles to create sounds and words that transcend categorization.
Pinikpikan has played in major venues and events all over the archipelago, and has also played outside the country, Singapore and Cambodia recently, to represent the best of world class Filipino world music.

The live performances are a treat to all the senses, awakening the good and wild spirits within you, and your surroundings. Intense, powerful, soulful, sensual.

Free the mind, feel the vibes, groove with the spirits. We invite you to experience Pinikpikan.

A bit of our history:

It all started in 1989 at the first Baguio Arts Festival, Baguio City, home to many of the most renowned contemporary Filipino artists. After the Festival’s opening, participating artists from Manila and the provinces had joined up with members of the Baguio Arts Guild for a dinner at the Cafe by the Ruins, Baguio´s homegrown cultural center. As they sat around the Café’s “dap-ay” (a circular rock installation found in the tribal villages of the Cordillera where elders hold their council and initiation rites), someone picked up a couple of pieces of pinewood meant for the fire raging at the centre. Another picked up some bamboo segments. Rum and beer bottles were used. So were covers of pots and pans. Rocks were pounded.
