  • Pósporos
  • Philippines
  • Productor

Burn Belacho was born in Manila, the Philippines’ capital, in 1984. As a child, he spent most of his summers in his parents’ hometown in Bohol and Cebu islands of Visayas. Having grown up both in close proximity to Nature Parks, the Tarsier sanctuary, and next to the sea; his love of nature and outdoor adventures grew tremendously.

When he was 12, after his father’s passing, Burn have since drawn closer to music. The interest was fueled by his enthusiasm during his teenage years and further developed when he opted to take his Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP). Through out his college life, he focused on cultural studies and society.

The stories that Burn inculcates in his songs and tunes, taking inspiration from Philippine indigenous communities and instruments, are barely part of the narrative. After completing his degree, Burn delved even more into his musical endeavour which involved world music. He spent years of cultivating his passion for in-depth traditional music research and advocacy for the revival and continuity of the dying culture of Filipino indigenous music. Burn’s passion for the arts was furthermore shaped in collaborative performances with different artists and mediums. In theatre arts, Dulaang Katig and Sining Bugkos exposed his artistic visions to new perspectives. To name a few of his involvements in both independent and mainstream music scene, Burn has been a part of a 20 year old world music band Talahib People’s Music. He is also in a well known long time running Philippine reggae band Tropical Depression where he plays flute and Hegalong, aside from his usual guitar riffs. The acoustic folk band Kinaiya is another genre that Burn has found himself with. He’s an active coordinator of Musika Publiko, a network of musicians, composers and mysic enthusiasts that support the advocacy of promoting socially relevant music. His involvements taught him to expand and fuse disciplines, genres and performances as his definition and philosophy as an artist along side with his advocacies. He feels that the artistic exchange between the indigenous roots and the artist opens up many opportunities.

It was in 2016 when Burn was invited over La Merienda; A round table discussion series with local artist communities and Cultural affairs of The Embassy of Spain in Manila. He was then offered the opportunity to be the project curator for the 2017 Posporos Philippine- Spanish Concerts in Manila; Cultural project of The Embassy of Spain in Manila and National Commission for the Culture and the Arts (NCCA). He then became the coordinator for 2018’s new format of Posporos; artist residency and workshop held in Bangkong Kahoy in Dolores, Quezon Province.

He currently lives in Makati, Philippines and continues to work with the Spanish Embassy in pursuing the Posporos school which will be catering deeper interaction through intensive music workshops and artist residency concept between chosen featured bands coming from the Philippines and from Spain.
