Artist Ebe Dancel was in the middle of speaking to a young, attentive audience when I arrived at Entablado. I was a little bit late for his listening party; it started early. The place was already standing room—all the seats were filled up. The latecomers stood at the back or at the side. All eyes and ears were on Ebe as he shared his experiences during the recording of his upcoming album “Bawat Daan” under Star Music, which is set to be released soon. There will be a separate album launch at Entablado sometime in January 2016.
Ebe played 8 songs out of the 11-track album, all from his smart phone, which was connected to the loudspeakers. He said that he didn’t want to play all the songs—he wanted to leave some surprises for the audience when they buy his album.
