Local indie-folk band Munimuni announced on social media that they are taking a break from the music scene.
Band members AJ Jiao, TJ de Ocampo, John Owen Castro, Jolo Ferrer, and Josh Tumaliuan released a letter on their official Facebook page yesterday, September 30 and shared that they have decided to take a hiatus.
“May i-aannounce lang sana kami. Alam naman nating lahat na medyo mahirap ang panahon ngayon. Maraming problema, maraming nakakalungkot, at the same time, maraming pangangailangan,” they wrote.
“Kaya sa panahong ito, gusto sana naming ipaalam sa inyo na magpapahinga muna kami. Hiatus, ika nga nila,” they added.
Munimuni then thanked their avid fans for supporting them through the years.
“Sa mga oras na sobrang dilim, yung suporta niyo ang nagiging liwanag namin. Salamat sa pag-asa na binibigay ninyo sa bawat isa sa amin. Mamimiss namin kayo.”
Since the pandemic, public events and gigs were put to a halt to avoid the spread of the coronavirus and this also affected several artists whose livelihoods are based on performing in public.
Minimuni is known for their songs “Sa’yo,” “Sa Hindi Pag-alala,” and “Marilag” to name a few.
