Otan will be performing live on July 31st from 2-5pm.
“Tondo, Manila is a place where people struggle on a daily basis. It is well known as one of the poorest regions in the Philippines. Born and raised here, singer/songwriter Otan Vargas spent his formative years surrounded mostly by poverty and despair. It is this humble background that helps motivate him to this very day.
Vargas’ music is a powerfully simplistic combination of soul-stirring vocals accompanied by an acoustic guitar. He writes songs about man’s struggle, sorrow, and pain and finding the strength to continue on. What started out simply as a means of personal therapy for himself has transformed into an inspirational beacon for adoring fans worldwide.
He has shared the stage with well-known artists like members of the band Staind, Slipknot, Megadeth, Evanescence, Seether, Three Days Grace, Saint Asonia, Tesla, Tantric, and many more.”
