Sa Wakas is a musical about a bittersweet love story that starts at the very end: a breakup, that everyone can really relate to. It’s a homegrown musical based on the songs of one of the country’s most beloved rock bands: Sugarfree. Sugarfree was a pop-alternative group that was formed in 1999, disbanded in 2011 but the frontman, Ebe Dancel is now a solo artist.

Up Dharma Down is the password to open my time capsule. Listen to their songs.. and boom I am transported to the past, memories are slowly flashing back. UDD songs are my ultimate “emo” soundtracks, with Tadhana or Oo, I am instantly ready for my own music video.
Whether you have a bad experience or been in a romantic love affair, you feel that their songs are personally written for you. It’s like they have been there before and have felt your pain. You will also remember how wonderful any phase of love feels and get a little romantic with every line in the songs. That’s how awesome UDD songs are!!!
For my foreign readers, Up Dharma Down is an award-winning rock band here in the Philippines and one of few great bands that has been featured in Time magazine. Talent and wit combined, four musicians (Armi Millare as the vocalist & on keyboards, Carlos Tanada on lead guitar, Ean Mayor on drums and Paul Yap on bass) make unforgettable music history together.
So before I get so emotional, let me share my top 3 UDD songs and my favourite lines:
