Tres Marias Live in Concert @ the Music Museum

There are groups that rise to fame because they are composed of super talented members, and then there’s super group Tres Marias whose members are already venerated in their respective circles even before they came together.
Comprised by Lolita Carbon from the iconic folk-rock band Asin, celebrated Color It Red vocalist Cooky Chua and World Music goddess Bayang Barrios, Tres Marias was formed when the three kept bumping into each other at rallies which they attend and perform at separately.
Recognizing their chemistry as a trio and being a fan of each other’s music, they started doing shows as one “just for kicks” until they decided to make the group official in 2012 without leaving behind their respective careers. The name was thought up for easy recall though it could also be a statement on femininity.

Tula Ni Arthur P. Cassanova - August 20,2015

(Ikalawang Bahagi)

Tutulaan ko ang araw/
Na ngumingiti sa pinto ng langit./
Upang ang mga uyayi ay kanyang maawit/
Sa mga kabataang natutulog sa mga lansangang pusikit./
Sa sementong malamig, doon nakahimlay habang humihibik,/
Kulay pighati ang hamog na bumabalot sa paligid.//

Tula-tulaan ni Frank. G. Rivera - August 20, 2015

"Kay FPJ ang Agosto 20" Ngayo'y kaarawan ng isang Alamat/ Pinilakang-Tabing kahariang hawak/ Fernando Poe, Jr. ang dalang pangarap/ Mga inaapi'y iahon sa lusak.// Pinanday ng Sining ang katauhan mo/ Na nagsilbing gabay sa maraming tao/ Mga tagahangang ikaw ang idolo/ FPJ, bida ka, bilib kami sa 'yo.// Hindi nga totoo na ika'y pumanaw/ Kahit nawala ka sa mundong ibabaw/ Naiwang pamana ay napakalinaw/ Katarungan lagi ang isinisigaw.// Sandatang pinanday, aming gagamitin/ Laban sa halimaw na dapat supilin/ Ipagpapatuloy ang iyong layunin/ Buhay-pelikula ay tototohanin.// Hindi kailanman ikaw napataob/ Dahil ang tumalo ngayo'y nakasubsob/ Ang mga bathala, sa 'yo nakalukob/ At nanatili kang mababa ang loob.// Ipagpapatuloy laban ng Alamat/ Mahika mong hawak minana ng anak/ Sana'y ipangako na maiaangat/ Bayang hindi sanay sa daang pabagsak./// (Tula-tulaan ni FrankG.Rivera.)

Tula sa Cellphone ni Frank G. Rivera - August 16, 2015

Napakainit nga raw ng panahon para magsimba/ Ano sa palagay mo kung sa impyerno ka pupunta?/ Sa simbahan, pwedeng magdasal na magbago ang mundo/ Kung hindi tayo kikilos, mundo mismo ang impyerno.// Labanan na ang 'Climate Change' kumilos tayo't magdasal/ Kalikasa'y alagaan, iwasan ang mga bawal/ Saan man pumunta, 'Global Warning' ay mararamdaman/ Ngunit di kailanman magiging impyerno ang simbahan./// A BLESSED SUNDAY TO YOU! (FGRtexts)August 16'2015
