The Autonomous Region presents both classic standards and modern arrangements of jazz favorites. Led by vocalist Caroline Cabading, this San Francisco-based ensemble performs regularly at the International Hotel Manilatown Center.
Autonomous was originally founded in the Spring of 2015 as the house band for the I-Hotel’s Club Mandalay pop-up jazz club. They began exploring and presenting original compositions fusing jazz with the pre-colonial tribal music of the Philippines. They call this genre Kul Jazz, named after the traditional kulintang music of Mindanao, Philippines. Fusing Latin feels and Funk Grooves into Rock creating percussive, rhythm driven, soulful songs with melodic lyrics and screaming Guitar Solos. Their influences are from early Santana, early Tower of Power. The music has solid beginnings and endings that are bold statements with tight breaks, ultra smooth dance-able Grooves and melodic Lyrics.
