妮提雅里拉樂團
Nityalila Band
「妮提阿里拉樂團」靈魂人物妮提,成長於印度瑜珈文化,是菲律賓知名民謠歌手,創作中總是在探索血統、起源、生命意義,搖滾的曲風則受到古印度及菲律賓音樂傳統的雙重洗禮,曾受邀在2009碧潭音樂節展現她亮眼的創作才華。 Nityalila is an independent group of five Filipino musicians advocating Filipino pride, human rights, and environmental issues through music and the arts. The group was formed in 2003 by singer-songwriter and music producer Nityalila Saulo. Joining her on stage are members Miko Aguilar on bass, Sandy Baliong on drums, Tim Cada on guitars, and Vaishnava on percussion.

In its six years of existence, the group has performed regularly on both local and international stages that support their advocacies, such as Fete de la Musique, Arts and Music Festival, Earth Day Concert Series, Sunrise Music Festival, Peace Camp Concert, UP Fair, NU107 Concert Series, Jam88.3 Concert Series, CCP Concert Series, The Taiwan Yoga Festival and in April of this year at The Bitan Music Festival in Taiwan. The group has also produced three all-original albums, Nityalila Bootleg released in 2003 by Nityalila in partnership with Rock Radio Cafe, Uno Jornal released in 2005 by independent label Bagani Music, and Ako’y Isang Pinay released in 2007 by Manna Records in partnership with Universal Records.

Recently, Nityalila Saulo was nominated for Best Performance by a New Female Recording Artist at the 2008 Awit Awards, a prestigious award-giving body spearheaded by PARI (The Philippine Association of the Record Industry, Inc.), which recognizes Filipino performing artists and people behind the making of Filipino recorded music.

Nityalila was born out of the realization that artists and musicians have “powers” to empower, educate, and inspire people, especially youth, to embrace our own culture and from there, to create original art and music.
