Colonial mentality and lack of gov’t support prevent Filipino music industry from flourishing, says music expert

“Ang pinakamalaking problema ng Pilipinas ay commodification that, we’re under a colonial mentality, kaya number 42 lang tayo sa industry, eh papano nga, our colonial mentality is so attuned to the US, kung ano yung sikat sa US, yun ang pino-promote natin,” Professor Felipe De Leon Jr., member of the national committee on music of the National Commission on Culture and the Arts (NCCA), explained one of the reasons why the Philippine music industry ranked only 42nd, lower than Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia in the International Federation of Phonographic Industry (IFPI).
Felipe added, “Masyadong American-made ang klase ng music natin, yung OPM natin is too Americanized, there’s not enough variety, there’s no creativity, there’s no originality, unlike Indonesia, Brazil, and Sweden, kaya ang dami-dami nilang klaseng music that they can promote, that’s why they sell, even Korea.”
