Hello everyone! We had the great pleasure of inviting the great all-girls band from the Philippines, called Baihana. Consisting of Krina Cayabyab (Soprano 1), Anna Achacoso (Soprano 2) Mel Torre (Alto) and the great Boy Katindig himself on keyboards. The girls were all in Kuala Lumpur for the World Youth Jazz Festival 2013, a jazz festival which focuses on the youth and the only one of its kind in the world, held yearly.  in Malaysia.

Formed in 2008, the group was spotted by the legendary musician Boy Katindig and eventually went on to become the winner of the Boy Katindig Jazz Competition. The trio have performed all over the world to great acclaim and we are honored to have them in the studio, with our students and teachers as their audience.

This is their rendition of the bebop standard "Donna Lee", with lyrics in Tagalog. Enjoy!
