Blues Clinic Highlights by Tek Cortez a.k.a. haringulan

Blues music is one of the most important creations of man. As written in an earlier post, "Blues is not just a genre - it's a microcosm of life itself. There's sorrow, happiness, hope, loneliness, religion, hunger, satiety, sin, redemption, and love - all embedded in the songs and expressed through voice and instruments."

Blues may now be considered an international phenomenon - it has crossed borders, no longer an exclusive American property. But here in the Philippines, it still is not a popular music form, much to the dismay of Pinoy Blues die-hard fans.

Luckily, Blues has lately been experiencing a revival. With the tireless efforts of Blues stalwarts who conduct seminars, clinics, and provide "Blues exposure" through concerts and performances, plus video blogs like this one by haringulan, slowly but surely, the Blues is getting the attention it deserves.
