AJKA is ......Undefined !


The band AJKA recently launched their debut EP entitled : "UNDEFINED" at CLUB PHI in MetroWalk last April 28, 2011 (pardon the late post please) which was presented by Sony Music in cooperation with NESCAFE and G.A. Yupangco & Co. Inc.

Th band is composed of K.A. Antonio (vocals), JL delas Llagas ( guitar ), Aaron Caligner (bass),and Jon Pinto (drums). the band's name came from their first name's first letter initials. AJKA describes their music as "pop with a hint of jazz , punk, and soul".

this band met in DLSU Official DLSU-POPS Orchestra now known as SURRELLI POPS ORCHESTRA.

Like many other bands, they also started joining several battle of the bands w/c led them to joining Nescafe 3-in-1 SOUNDSKOOL Competition for college bands which also produced bands such as HILERA, LETTER DAY STORY and EEVEE.

The band was among the 5 finalists in the competition  and emerged as champions via text votes.

After Listening to to these band i really enjoyed listening to them especially with their songs like " Tanong Lang", and that same song won them as the grand champion for 2010 Nescafe 3-in-1 Soundskool.

I included this video so you may hear how powerful and soothing this 
lady-vocalist can belt high notes on their songs.

I also like K.A Antonio's way of belting high notes in a jazzy-kind-of way. Their album is consists of five original songs namely:

  1. Ako Naman
  2. In Denial
  3. Tanong lang
  4. Down
  5. Endless
I could just feel the vocalist's message across her songs. And how nice it is to know that all the songs in this album are "all-originals". Aside from the band's ingenuity ,they also has the talent for creating new and original songs. I can guarantee you that once you guys buy their album that its all worth it.

And after listening to them live ,I became fan. More photos below on their album launch.

I wouldn't pass the night w/o having a picture w/ the band!
This album was produced by Jonathan Ong (Gloc-9 and Letter Day Story) and The Youth's Robert Javier.
