Lullabye Yang: Birthing Music And An Angel With Bayang Barrios
Conceiving a child and nurturing it to term usually means a sabbatical from work for many women, including artists. But for singer-songwriter Bayang Barrios, it was a wonderful opportunity for growth, though pregnant she was with her firstborn, daughter Mayumi. “A lot of people were calling up to work with me, and I knew right then that those nine months would be doubly blessed!” And so started one of the most prolific periods in Bayang's career, as she lent her unique voice and artistry to projects such as the Asian Tourism Summit held in Davao City last January, the music of GMA 7's hit shows “Encantadia”, “Etheria” and “Pinoy Abroad”, the hit indie film “Ang Pagdadalaga Ni Maximo Oliveros (with the song ‘Isipin Mo Nalang')”, and heralding the South East Asian Games this year with Ryan Cayabyab and the San Miguel Orchestra. She has also started work on another album, a collection of lullabyes dedicated to her new angel. No doubt another treasure trove of music from one of our most talented artists, new mother Bayang Barrios.
