Since Champ and Kitchie Nadal sometimes get to be in the same gig together, I haven‚Äôt noticed any awkward moments during their rehearsals. Also, I think Champ‚Äôs band are great performers especially that Monty Macalino (vocalist and guitarist extraordinaire of Mayonnaise) is one of them.
Karel Honasan (bassist of Yosha) helped Kitchie Nadal and Champ with their mash-up collaboration for the songs ‚ÄúBulong‚Äù (by Kitchie Nadal) and ‚ÄúHanging Habagat‚Äù (by Champ). Both Champ and Kitchie Nadal liked the arrangement that Karel made for them.
For me, I think it would be more interesting if it came out sounding as a new song and not as a typical medley. The song started off with the intro of “Bulong” and after progressing to the first stanza, at some point, both songs will meet and will finally progress to ‚ÄúHanging Habagat‚Äù. The song ended up with them singing the last part of “Hanging Habagat” while guitars for “Bulong” were being played. Nevertheless, I like how the song ended.
Watch out for the next mash-up.
