Philippine President Benigno Simeon Aquino III himself recently unveiled the site which was hailed as the “wave of the future” for Filipino music.
opm2go is an online store dedicated to serving Filipino artists, musicians and music lovers. It celebrates all forms of Filipino music from all genres.
The OPM2Go’s goal is to become the online repository for all Filipino music. It aims to help the Filipino music industry by providing a distribution avenue for artists, bands and musicians so that they may be able to reach a broader audience.
Through this new distribution avenue, artists and musicians will be able to economically and rapidly release their material.
And the brain of this new site is none other than its chairman Ogie Alcasid.
“ The music industry has been very good to me, and I think that OPM2Go is a great way for me to give back and help the next generation of musicians and artists,” said Alcasid.
“ I hope that both the industry as well as music lovers will realize that we are trying to do more than just sell songs, but also want to be a part of something bigger than we can imagine. I believe that we’ve only scratched the surface of what can be achieved through marriage of music and internet technology,” he added.
