BisDAK Wednesdays: Rommel Tuico (“Dili Tanan”)

If you’re in Cebu and listen to the radio frequently, then you are not a stranger to the somewhat-going-mainstream songs of Rommel Tuico.

His songs, which are reminiscent (both in melody and lyrics) of the novelty songs by Yoyoy Villame and Max Surban are definitely getting the attention of the listening public.

Undeniably, when I heard it for the first time, it got my attention and I instantly became a fan! My 2-year old son also shares the same excitement every time he hears the song and even sings it with his own lyrics “dili tanan gwapo, gwapo!”. It never fails to make me smile and laugh.

As an avid fan of Bisrock ever since it first started and while it was not as saturated (and somewhat became overrated because of bands that just created songs for the heck of it without regard for musically and sense); the meaningful and lively somewhat reggae style songs from this Cebuano artist was really cause for renewed appreciation on Cebuano talent and music.

His songs are relatable, funny, and easy to listen to and in fact even causes LSS (Last Song Syndrome) on most times.

Sharing his songs here to give you guys the LSS as well for today! Sorry, I unfortunately don’t have a Wikipedia article on him but I just learned that he was part of the band Stage Crew before.
