The Summer Peace Festival 2013 (SPF13) “Paz de Musika” held in La Vista Del Mar last April 30, 2013 was a resounding musical success. It brought some of the who’s who in the entertainment industry from Manila and other countries in the shore of Asia’s Latin City.

Manila top musical makers like  Sinyma, Mush Project, Steady Machine, Kate Torralba, and Human Folk performed on stage with Time Magazine cover boy Fantuzzi of New York, jazz singer Svegler of Berlin, Germany; Walter Tomas and Isa Tabasuares of Barcelona, Spain. They came and jammed with the local crowd from sunset all the way to early morning of May 1. Their kind of music may not be popular (yet) among the common tao but their kind of music are soothing, groovy and upbeat. Popular international DJ Joel Clotas kept the crowd too on their feet when he was on board.

For this, it was featured last week at Studio 23’s Urban MYX (pronounced /ˈmɪks/, stylized as myx) as biggest musical event in Western Mindanao this year. MYX 23 is our country’s largest music cable channel managed by the Creative Programs Inc. of ABS-CBN showing the best of local and foreign music 24/7. It targets music lovers and youth audiences with music videos as its prime vehicle, a strategy reminiscent of the early days of MTV.

The SPF13 "Paz de Musika" has created a positive image for our city as well for the whole of Mindanao sending a message that music can bring people together regardless of race, age, religion, and cultural background in the name of peace and harmony. Aside from these musicians, top personalities from Manila and other key cities flew in to enjoy the splendor of our city because of SPF13.

Thanks and congrats to Marco Lobregat who organized this commendable event not only in our city but also in Cagayan de Oro. It was coordinated with Good Karma, Muni Events and Productions, and Ministry of Mushroom, supported by LBC Foundation, Tzu Chi Foundation, Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation, I Can Make A Difference, Project Banig, Stillpoint Manila, Kape Zambo, Western Mindanao State University, the Zamboanga State College of Marine Sciences and Technology.
