A First for Filipino Music:

Jazz Singer Charmaine Clamor Makes the World Music Charts


 n Related Story: Charmaine Clamor Revealed

The latest JazzWeek World Radio charts contain a historic first: A Filipino singer has one of the most played records in America.

Filipino-American Charmaine Clamor, the creator of jazzipino, a musical form that combines American jazz and blues with the melodies, languages and instruments of traditional Filipino music, has earned this exclusive honor.

Her new album, Flippin' Out, which contains beloved kundiman and harana presented with contemporary soul and swing, debuted at #27 on the national charts. According to JazzWeek, her Flippin' Out (FreeHam Records) CD was the #3 most popular new record of the week.

Clamor's appearance on the World Music Chart puts her in the same company as international artists like Bob Marley, Arturo Sandoval, and Bebel Gilberto.

"As a recording artist, I've had a lifelong dream of bringing the music of my people to the whole wide world," Clamor said. "The response from American radio programmers has been overwhelming. I'm thrilled that the richness of our beautiful Filipino musical culture is being enjoyed all over the United States."

Flippin' Out's heavy airplay across America and in Australia and Canada, has introduced mainstream listeners to Filipino standards like "Dahil Sa'yo," "Minamahal Kita," and "Sa Ugoy Ng Duyan." And they are coming out in droves to hear Charmaine Clamor sing live.

To celebrate the release of Flippin' Out, her next West Coast appearance will be August 31 and September 1 at Catalina Bar & Grill Jazz Club, followed by dates on the East Coast in New York, New Jersey, and Boston.
