"We want to be remembered for the idea that we helped make the culture and music of P-pop rise," Clara said during their short interview with PARCINQ Magazine. "Our country, in terms of the entertainment industry, needs us right now, and that's why we are part of the TUGATOG Filipino Music Festival. We want to be remembered as one of the way-finders for the next generation of P-pop artists."
Tugatog Filipino Music Festival aims to showcase both rising and prominent artists that define the peak of Filipino music, and for 2022 the spotlight is on P-Pop. The culture and sound of P-pop are undeniably dominating the airwaves, and the creators of Tugatog want to celebrate the phenomenon and create a bookmark that will last for a lifetime. "We take a lot of inspiration from the P-pop groups that we will be performing within Tugatog. "After all, we all have our differences but we are here with the same goal, and that is to make P-pop rise," Clara said.
When asked about how they are preparing for the grand event, the girls said they have been practicing non-stop. "Everyday, we go on training and rehearsals because we want to showcase who we really are not just as a P-pop girl group, but a talented Filipino," Joyden said.
The groups might be only a few steps in the limelight, but the girls are already proving that they have what it takes to stand and raise the P-pop flag. According to the group, their newest song, "BLING BLING" will surely be part of their set during the TUGATOG Filipino Music Festival but fans should expect more twist and turn during the event.
"With TUGATOG Filipino Music Festival, we hope for more recognition in terms of our music as a P-pop community," Ella said. "Not only for us, DIONE, as a group but for every group that will be performing with us!"
