Up Dharma Down

Up dharma Down is an award-winning Filipino rock band. Their discography already contains two LPs, 2006’s Fragmented and 2008’s Bipolar (both under independent record label Terno Recordings). They are expected to release their third album sometime in 2010. Mark Cole’s BBC show tagged them as the Asian band to most likely cross over to North American shores, and has been featured in numerous regional shows together with bands such as Arcade Fire (Canada) and Bloc Party (UK). Their eclectic music gave them the leverage to stand above most local bands in the Philippines, enough to be featured in the July 2007 issue of Time Magazine. They have also been recognized by Paul Buchanan of The Blue Nile and Tim Bowness of No-Man. The band was the opening act for Incubus’ Light Grenades Pacific Rim Tour Manila stop at Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City on March 9, 2008. In 2005, the band won the coveted In The Raw Award at the NU 107 Rock Awards as well as Best New Artist and Best Female Award for vocalist and keyboardist, Armi Millare, in 2006. In 2008, they were awarded Favorite Indie Artist at the Myx Music Awards. –taken from
