Was passing through Avenida Rizal lately on my way to Recto when I noticed a huge crowd underneath the Carriedo LRT1 Station. And there's music and singing in the air. Ah! One of those frequent open-air "concerts" in this area where blind musicians play and sing every weekend.
Calling themselves "D'Blind Performers", the singer was very, very good and she almost sounds like that young singer in the Philippines, Sarah Geronimo. Obviously, the huge crowd is enough proof that great talent do not have to come in CDs and cassettes.
Refreshments and snacks (dried squid hot off the grill and fake but very cold "fruit" juices) are readily available around the area. Enjoy!
