Seven years ago, in a music scene largely dominated by alternative rock, Armi Millare and band Up Dharma Down broke into the mainstream consciousness. The band enjoyed a cult following in the independent music scene consisting of college students and purveyors of the avant-garde, and then continued on to live performances soon after.
Millare calls Up Dharma a performing band, more suited to live gigs than to television or radio.
It is difficult to put a finger on the music. With a piano taking center stage, some flavorful guitar riffs, jazzy bass licks, and electronic beat loops, it wasn’t rock, it wasn’t jazz, it wasn’t pop, it wasn’t techno. One thing was certain - Up Dharma Down was an alternative to “alternative.”
And suddenly - and quite reluctantly - the soft-spoken girl behind the piano found herself in the limelight.
Up Dharma Down’s Armi Millare shares her pursuit of a life in music, her aversion to bright lights, and her love for her cat
An article on Armi Millare of Up Dharma Down, the BEST local band in the Philippines! A glimpse into her private life. I don’t know who in their right mind would want to hurt such a beautiful and talented woman, but I’m glad they did because it’s fueled her and the band to create such amazing music. I know I’ll never hurt her tho. ;-)
Di ako maka move-on. Nov 30 2013. Habang buhay kitang maalala. Yang araw na yan ay ang araw na wala kang tulog dahil tumulong ka sa pag gawa ng Christmas decor para sa Christmas party nila Judy at Rish. Tapos dumeretso ka sa QC Memorial Circle para sa event na inorganize ng Dakila na Bayanihan Republic. Di ka naman nag chill chill dun sa event na yun. tumulong ka din kasi natutuwa ka naman sa pinaggagagawa nila dun. tsaka makakatulong sa mga nasalanta ng bagyong Yolanda. Nung kinagabihan. sobrang pagod ka na nun. pero pinag shoot ka padin ni Chito. Pero ok lang. Kesa wala kang ginagawa. tapos nagsimula na yung Jam. nung una wala ka pa halos pake. kasi di ka naman fan nila Fredie Aguillar at nung iba pa. PERO nung narinig mo nang may nakanta ng Tadhana. Takbo ka kaagad sa gilid ng backstage. Papicture picture sa screen. hanggat sa nag makaawa ka pumasok sa backstage. kasi sabi din naman ni Chito pwede. edi kinapalan mo mukha mo nun. Ayan. nagka picture ka with Armi Millare. Lahat ng pagod na nararamdaman mo nun nawala nang parang bula. Katuwa kasi. Hayy. Happy Damulag.
Nakatulong na ko kila Judy. Nakatulong na ko kila Rap at Chito at iba pang Dakila. Nakatulong ka na din kahit papano sa mga nasalanta ng bagyo. Nag enjoy ka pa sa event. TAAPOOOOOSS MAY PICTURE KA PA TALAGA WITH ARMI~~
Kay sarap mabuhay~
