tagaytay art beat
Here’s what you get when fresh talents in art and music come together for a onenight show
THE TAGAYTAY ART BEAT is a microfestival of art and music, organized by Museo Orlina and Doc Def Productions to bring a new wave of artists to those who want to hear and see something different. Micro-festivals are nothing new, but what made this year’s Art eat s ecial is the ow of the festival and the location, breezy Tagaytay. What Museo Orlina created was an intimate gathering of people in one space, with a different vibe from what they are used to in the city.
The museum is found along a sloped driveway with a cobbled pathway going down to the museum’s gardens, where the bands played. Upon entry, the ow wor ed in a way that made visitors pass by all the artwor s before reaching the concert grounds. This was an ingenious move on the part of Museo Orlina, because rather than ma ing the artwor s merely the bac drop of whoever was playing, they made the museum an integral part of the event. You could listen to local talents such as The Ransom Collective, Farewell Fair Weather, or Bullet Dumas while chatting with the young emerging artists whose wor s were showcased throughout the venue. Three oors up, there was an open-air rooftop where DJs spun and free beer was served.
The goal of Museo Orlina and Docdef Productions was to expose people to the possibilities of both art and music at the same time; to ma e them realize that there are commonalities in each—such as artistic expression, which everyone present could relate to. This event was more than a celebration of the youth; it was also an open invitation for new artists to hone their talents inside a space where its owner molded different materials into new and exciting shapes.
