We’re proud to showcase the different teen-led passion projects of our Abot Tala members. They’re definitely oozing with talent & creativity and we believe the world should see what they’ve worked on.
Two of our teens, Ligaya Escueta and Janna Mishka, have their songs up on Slice of Sky, a compilation on Spotify under the mentorship of singer-songwriter, Acel Van Ommen. They also designed the cover art of the album. Click here to stream it.
There are two bands within the community. Silica Summer and Vibin’. is Ligaya Escueta and Chandra Rye. In the video featured below, you’ll see them jamming with singer-songwriter-producer-teens’-favorite-mentor Mikey Amistoso of the band Ciudad and Hannah + Gabi. Vibin’ is Janna Mishka, Erica de Belen, and Tim de Belen. We hope you enjoy these covers by these two rockin’ bands!

All of the logos of Abot Tala are teen-made. Our main logo was designed by Kristo Mercado and our Abot Tala High and Launchpad logos were created by Moenn Zuniga.

You can check out and subscribe to their YouTube channel here: K-Area Covers. Here’s their latest video:
