March has been quite an ex­cit­ing and eventful month, we de­cided to ded­i­cate this en­tire is­sue to all things art and mu­sic, be­gin­ning with the beau­ti­ful and tal­ented DJ Christina Bart­ges, a.k.a. Miss Bad­kiss, grac­ing our cover. We were priv­i­leged enough to shoot her in a col­lab­o­ra­tion with Ev­ery­where We Shoot cou­ple Ryan Ver­gara and Garovs Gar­rovillo at the re­cent Fi­nale Art File ex­hibit of Roberto Cha­bet, deemed the Fa­ther of Philip­pine Con­cep­tual Art and a men­tor to many of to­day’s big names in art.

I am proud to say that there is cur­rently a new awak­en­ing and aware­ness in both mu­sic and art in the Philip­pines to­day—so no­table, in fact, that we have moved this is­sue one Sun­day down so Mara Miano, our amaz­ing and spir­ited in­tern, could cover Malasimbo (p.6), a mu­sic and arts fes­ti­val held in Puerto Galera, Ori­en­tal Min­doro. Now on its third year and with feed­back so en­tic­ing, the event is some­thing that I look for­ward to at­tend­ing next year.

Inquirer RED Mag­a­zine also lets you in on what peo­ple from the past and present mu­sic scenes lis­ten to (in­quiRED, p.30), with hopes that you can en­rich your own mu­si­cal taste by adding new tunes to your playlist. For non­con­formists, this is­sue’s ac­quiRED (p.11) might en­cour­age them to start a col­lec­tion of vinyl records, which are ex­actly art and mu­sic put to­gether.

Art and mu­sic in­spire this mag­a­zine pre­cisely be­cause they nat­u­rally unite peo­ple. Spice up your week­end by vis­it­ing gal­leries and at­tend­ing gigs and con­certs with friends or fam­ily; surely all that cre­ativ­ity will unite and in­spire you, too.

Things are get­ting ex­cit­ing out there, don’t miss out!
