Binky Lampano

The original Filipino wailer!

I remember watching Binky Lampano's band on TV years back (Lampano Alley). It was a series of performances titled "Concert at the Park." Luckily I was able to catch a glimpse of those.

Binky's voice stood out, always did. Even though he had a tight band which included the great Tom Colvin on harp, still it was Binky who gave the group its soul. Probably, he IS the reincarnation of a long-gone blues singer from Mississippi.

The group has since disbanded, I've read that Binky is now based abroad.

Binky's rendition of Ray Charles' "Hallelujah, I Love Her So" is the best... even better than Ray...
