Comprising the pseudonymous Bamboo, Rico, Blanco, Nathan Azarcon and Mark Escuata, River Maya are a ‘back-to-basics’ rock band from the Philippines. The group’s self-titled debut album accrued significant critical praise in the south-east Asia region, its commercial success prompted by the inclusion of the group’s breakthrough hit, ‘214’. The group kept up their momentum when ‘Kisap Mata’ (Flick Of An Eye) also became a major national hit. As well as touring on conventional rock stages, River Maya have demonstrated their commitment to the youth of the Philippines by playing regularly at schools, youth clubs and malls.
