Is OPM still alive? This is the question of some Filipinos who now preferred to listen to Korean and western music. Parokya ni Edgar vocalist Chito Miranda explained that Pinoy music scene is now on its higher level. "We totally laugh at it. They have no idea how big it is now," Miranda said. Songwriters of today are more creative and passionate than those of the nineties. Miranda iterated that band performers nowadays cannot just be seen on tv, they perform in bars, resto or even in the open air places. Most bands perform every week or twice a week for 20,000 to 40,000 audiences.

Parokya ni Edgar had collaborated with thru a tour with Wolfgang, Kamikazee, Rico Blanco and Urbandub. They are not competing with each other but they are now united to share their love for OPM. Many products on TV ads of today are being endorsed by band members. This is one proof that OPM is still alive. All of them continue to live with their music, they perform well, at the same time they are compensated. [via philstar.com]
