A Filipino Band 1 - The Dawn

The Dawn is my favorite band in the Philippines. This band changed the structure of Filipino culture in the 80's.

A Dawn of a new age of Filipino music.

The band is composed of well educated middle class Filipinos.

A band formed in one of the ivy league school in Manila or should I say the University belt of Manila and other bands emerged within the belt.

Teddy Daiz was a great musician and I called him the Jimi Hendrix of the Philippines but his life was short live when a crazed fanatic killed him in Greenhills. You will see him performed on part 2 of the history of The Dawn.
