MAKOPA's 2010 eponymous album now available as a free download

Good day everyone. Makopa's full-length album released in 2010 is now available for free at

Here's a track review from

“Diwata ng Dilim by Makopa
This is the marriage of the sensualities of jazz and the potency of lyricism. The entire track is a rhapsodical feast, all 7 minutes and 14 seconds of it. “Bihag ko ang puso mo, tuwing bumabagsak ang takipsilim. Ang isip mo'y palasyo ko, at sa akin ay wala ka nang lihim.” The song is lumped with personifications and clever wordplay. It has an overall notable jive that livens up the mood. Not that I've been to one, but it's how I imagine a Broadway performance would sound like: a big band, a spotlight, vocalist Nika Espinosa with her coiffed hair, wearing rogue lipstick and a red velvet dress, poised and strutting on stage. It appeals to the senses so much that it's like it comes with visuals, too."

We hope you enjoy the album. If you want the actual album CD, you can get it from us at one of our gigs. Cheers!
