Silent Sanctuary

Silent Sanctuary was formed in 2001 with just three founding members, Norman Dellosa (vocals, guitars), Paolo Legaspi (bass guitar, backing vocals), and Allen Calixto (drums). As a growing band, they experimented in their music by mixing in classical instruments to make a unique sound, adding the fourth member, Norman’s high school classmate Anjo Inacay (cellist) to the line-up. In 2002 they were asked to guest in UnTV’s In the Raw where Anjo asked Jett Ramirez to create string arrangements for their performance. More string instrumentalists joined them during that single episode. Later, Jett and Chino David (violinists) were both asked as formal members of the band. In February 2004, they released an independently produced full length album in Millennia Bar and Cafe in Kamuning entitled Ellipsis of the Mind. Jett Ramirez later on left the band.

Later on, Sarkie Sarangay took over vocal duties for the band after Norman Dellosa’s departure. Jason Rondero, vocalist/bassist of indie band New Modern became the band’s new bassist when Paolo Legaspi left the band after the successful Debut Album called Fuchsiang Pag-ibig. Anjo Inacay left the band temporarily due to his studies at Boston in within two consecutive years. –
