#MusicPH - Nicole Laurel Asensio Shares Her Experience With Hinahanap Hanap Kita Manila!

 “Hinahanap-Hanap Kita, Manila” - The Manila Heritage Concert presented by the Tourism Promotions Board Philippines, City of Manila, Juancare Foundation Inc and Viva Music Publishing Inc as early as now has been dubbed as biggest online concert to end 2020.

11 iconic artists will perform in iconic locations in Manila to the music of the iconic Hotdog, whose songs defined the Manila Sound era.

This concert is a tribute to front liners battling COVID-19. It also aims to inspire Filipinos through our own music and artistry; to reinvigorate the live events industry; and to promote domestic tourism by showcasing Manila’s heritage sites.

We got a chance to hear some stories from Nicole Laurel Asensio as she share her experience shooting in the iconic Jones Bridge. 

Nearing the end of November and recovering from devastating typhoon, Direk Juno rounded up the troops and they were set for our shoot on Jones Bridge praying for good weather. "We did the afternoon shots just as the sun began to sink into the river, Thankfully, the sky was clear and the weather was perfect. Through every sequence, I was thrilled to see how they production was so impeccably so organized and followed the time guidelines to a tee, Every marked location was so secure and on point with protocols, thanks to our security officers who happened to be veteran theatre artists Jamie Wilson and Gold Soon who poured their hearts and time into our production.", Nicole happily shared. 

The night sky creeped in, it was inky black, starless (save for one dim celestial body to the east) and a bright white half moon that shone bright without clouds to shroud from plain sight. The historical post office building lights bordering the river came on— a golden glow lined the edges of both the historical building, and the beautiful Jones bridge structure. 

Wandering an empty bridge had a surreal, almost ghost-like energy to it, I felt weightless. When you stand there it’s like the energy emanates from the ground… the 10-foot silk train behind me swept the street and swept through dust, decades rich in history, passion, revolution and taking with it pieces of yesterday’s beloved Manila.

“Hinahanap-Hanap Kita, Manila” will stream for FREE on December 13, 8:00pm on the pages of the sponsoring agencies - Isko Moreno Domagoso, Department of Tourism, Culture and Arts of Manila, Department of Tourism - Philippines, National Parks Development Committee, Intramuros Administration, Nayong Pilipino Foundation, National Museum of the Philippines and Museo Pambata.
