From BisRock and VisPop to Original Bisaya Music, the Cebu music scene is an exciting and inspiring avenue to explore and appreciate our hometown’s musical prowess. There are many Cebuano bands and solo artists who have already break through in the music business. It’s something that we should be proud of as Cebuanos. 



If you have not listened to any homegrown music, then you better listen to one. These purely talented artists tend to produce songs with more meaning and value, focusing on themes like life, love, and the society. 


So, we are sharing with you a growing list of Cebuano artists that have captured our hearts.

When it comes to pop rock, no one does it better than the Wonggoys. This band of brothers—namely Gabriel, Kyle, and William (but now a band of six)—can brighten up our mood with their music and, not to mention, their cute outfits! 


One of the best things about this band is the way they hype up the crowd with their performances. It’s lively, entertaining, and definitely fun! 


Check out their latest single, “Ako“, now available on Spotify!


Favorite Song: Weekend

Where do we go?
It wouldn't be a weekend without the fun,
It wouldn't be a weekend without the sun,
It wouldn't be a weekend at all.

Pop with a hint of blues, jazz, funk, and R&B—that’s what best describes the songs of this cool Cebu-based band. Three Legged Men PH have been blessing us with music that we can definitely jam to.


Fun Fact: They performed during the Plus63 Music and Arts Festival last February 2, 2020, together with the famous American indie pop, LANY.


Favorite Song: Keep

But what about love
Does it have to end
What about change
No, I won’t bend
What about faith
When there’s no hope in sight

Why did I let you go, set you free
Say goodbye and leave me
Why don't you give me a chance
Come me back to me
Cause I don't wanna sleep
And wake up on empty sheets

Well, where do we even start? When it comes to world-class music, it’s definitely Cattski. She writes songs that speak the language of the soul. Everyone who knows her know that she is the exact definition of a woman with great passion for music.


Cattski is the founder of 22 Tango Records, an independent record label which aims to produce, promote, and distribute Cebuano music. Thanks to this woman of power, many local artists received opportunities to share their music with locals and the rest of the world.


Favorite Song: Sea Hue

When I see you, I'll be different
I won't be so sensitive
There wont be a need to be defensive
When I see you, I'll be happy
I won't be paralyzed
You'll see a smile in my eyes
When I see you
