Folk band Munimuni are set to host a major concert on July 20.

The show, titled ‘Alegorya’ (Allegory), will be held at the University of the Philippines Theater in Diliman, Quezon City. In a press statement, the band shared that the concert will be an “audio-visual treat for the senses” inspired by their latest record, Alegorya. The album was released in early May of this year.

“Practically, this one is the biggest so far in terms of audience, and the longest in terms of set list,” Munimuni explained when describing the concept behind the concert. “Creatively, we aim to create an experience that mirrors the album’s inherent complexity.”

This is the group’s third major concert, following their self-titled headlining show at the Music Museum in 2018 and the Kulayan Natin concert at Cine Adarna, UP Film Center in 2019. ‘Alegorya’ will focus on the theme of “looking at the world and our human selves a bit deeper” and “going beyond what is apparent on the surface.”

“We’re excited to perform at the UP Theater, not just because of the size and prestige of the venue, but also because it feels close to home. The band started in the UP Diliman campus, after all. Our goal for performing in large shows and smaller shows is the same, though. We really just want our songs to move people and somehow help them go through life with a sense of hope. For this concert, the goal stays the same, but we get to express it in a different way, which we take as an opportunity to grow as artists,” Munimuni continued.

On June 13, the band announced that singer-songwriters Barbie Almalbis, Clara Benin, Keiko Necesario, and Sofia Abrogar of Any Name’s Okay would be joining them as special guests. “For the guest artists, we chose people who the band has been friends with for a long time and are artists that we look up to in the music scene,” Munimuni said in a press statement. “Some of them already have collaborations with us, and some are collaborating with us for the first time. We are excited to see how they will be able to give a different color to our songs.”

Almalbis lent her vocals to “Tupa,” the 12th track on Alegorya. Previously, Benin collaborated with the band on “Solomon,” released in 2019.
