During the Vietnam war. the Philippines was one of the American troops main bases. Its capital of Manilla ensured the GIs relaxation and pleasure during their time off. The local bands who played gigs in brothels and late night bars changed their regular repertoire to adapt to their new clients. the boys. and their American taste. A new musical genre was born. PINOY DISKO. a mix of classic funk and disco covers sung in English or in the traditional language of tagalog. All these tunes reek of booze. dames. nostalgia and fighting. blending to the combination of a great FUNK cocktail. Some of the covers bands really stood out. some have been forgotten!
