Filipinos have a unique kind of music. We call it “OPM(Original Pinoy Music)” which not only makes some foreign people sing but also encourage them to create their own songs.
Recently, I was surfing videos to watch on Youtube when I stumble to this guy’s channel(David Dimuzio) and already got my bid to be his fan. The funny part is that he plays and sing my favourite Filipino songs with pride though he is not a Filipino. He embraced my music and culture – which makes him more amazing.

David Dimuzio, “I wrote my first real song when I was 11 years old because I had a huge crush on a girl at camp. My heroes growing up where my favorite musicians, and that seemed to be what they did. I sang her the song after we attended the “summer camp dance” then timidly asked if I could kiss her, she said yes, and then we kissed each other on the cheek, and I realized I was on to something. I play guitar on my own recordings, write all of my own lyrics, and arrange all of my own music. “
