Kuerdas Gensan Band
Kuerdas band is the leading reggae band of General Santos and arguably in the entire Region 12 - South Cotabato. They are a strong advocate of both original Pinoy music and the reggae community. Every year they host the biggest Reggae gathering in Mindanao participated by local bands and different personalities across different cities and municipalities. The leader of the group is also the composer of most of their tracks and local hits - Jayson "Onyok" Ugbaniel. Most people call him "Angkol Onyok.
In February 2018, Kuerdas reached its 15- year anniversary. It also released its first self-produced album entitled “Bugsay Ta Bay.”
Over the years, Kuerdas had organized events and continuously advocated for supporting local artists and the composition of original songs. It also hopes that an influential Musician’s Organization can be established to foster strong bonds and camaraderie between and among themselves and most especially to promote musician’s welfare to avoid talent exploitation. If realized, all musicians in the city will benefit from this endeavor.
