Pinkmen co-frontman and songwriter Giro Alva dives into the classical territory and displays his virtuosity with the guitar in this all-instrumental album which ranges from beautiful Kundiman to six-string experiments. The album entitled, “Mula Sa Iyo”.
“During the time I wrote the pieces, nag iipon lang talaga ako nung bricks ko ng chords tsaka yung mga feeling kong malasa na melody. at that time I was studying a lot of solo guitar music. naturally gusto ko lang sila ipagkakabit parang lego by shapes and colors hahaha. Dati walang meaning sakin tong sinulat ko. pero dahil sobrang dami nang time dumaan since nagawa ko, parang nag bago na din yung meaning sakin. mula sa new fresh perspective ko lahat to gawa ng sadness ko dati. and something inside wants to make the things in my head that feel bad into something that feels good. parang part siya ng healing ko dati. hirap mag record ng walang aircon din. yun lang hahahaha”. – Giro Alva
