Kai Honasan: “This City”
When In Manila, up and coming singer-songwriter, KAI HONASAN, is ready to show a whole new side of OPM armed with an unusual weapon of choice – a ukulele. This 23-year old senior at the UP College of Music has been writing her own songs on any instrument she could get a hold of, from the piano to a plastic kazoo since her elementary school days. In 2011, she joined 60 aspiring singer-songwriters from all over the world for a songwriting workshop held at Berklee College of Music’s new campus in Valencia, Spain and there she wrote “This City”, a song inspired by her little adventure and the people she met along the way.
Apart from “This City”, Kai also had a chance to work with TOMS Shoes Philippines to write a song especially for their One for One movement entitled “Heartbeat”. Both songs, as well as more of her originals can be downloaded for free off her Facebook page at www.facebook.com/kaihonasanmusic.
No matter what she’s singing about, whether it be cities, heartbeats or even slapping somebody in the face, Kai Honasan’s catchy melodies and humorous lyrical style definitely make her a fresh and funny young artist to watch out for in the local music scene.
