Coke Studio recognized at Tambuli Awards for OPM advocacy

Coke Studio Season 1 was awarded the silver plaque under the Youth Brand category of the Asia-Pacific Tambuli Awards 2018.

The first season of Coke Studio, a music platform of Coca-Cola Philippines, was highly-praised at the recently concluded Asia Pacific Tambuli Awards for its outstanding contribution in the development of Original Pilipino Music (OPM). 

The Tambuli Awards is one of the longest-running award-giving bodies that recognizes marketing campaigns and programs that adhere to the promotion of human good.

Coke Studio Season 1 took home the silver award under the youth brand category for its efforts to change the OPM landscape.

“Bringing Coke Studio to the Philippines was a great experience for all of us – seeing how music is a huge part of the lives of Filipinos. This award is for everyone who was part of this milestone in the history of Coca-Cola and in the local music industry. It keeps us excited as we prepare for the second season of Coke Studio,” said Stephan Czypionka, Marketing Director of Coca-Cola Philippines.

Coke Studio aimed to strengthen the connection of Filipino teens with the brand by harnessing the language of music as a bridge. In the process, Coke Studio became a platform to showcase OPM and increase the interest of teens with local artists and their music. The program provided the local music scene’s newcomers with the opportunity to collaborate with the more established names in the industry. The collaborations resulted in the production of exciting new music.

The music platform engaged upcoming artists with some of the established names in the local music scene to create fresh sounds. Well-known musicians like Abra, Gracenote, Ransom Collective, Sandwich, Franco, Gab and John, Urbandub, Moonstar88, Reese Lansangan, Ebe Dancel, Autotelic, Noel Cabangon, Curtis Smith, Jensen and the Flips, and BP Valenzuela were part of the first season.

The language of music as a unifying force is at the core of the Coke Studio campaign, underscoring the role of music in the lives of Filipino teens, especially in self-expression and as a way to connect with their peers. Like music, Coke is also one of the brands that bring people together.

Coke Studio in the Philippines was initiated by Stephan Czypionka, Jenny Cinco, Nina Mahnik, Jesus Ferreira, Jason Gervasio, Macy Magpayo, Jenna Macalagay, Kris Perez, Jonah de Lumen, JB Cajita, Kristine Macaraniag, and Krisha Iliscupidez, all from Coca-Cola Philippines, together with their partner agencies – McCann World Group as the creative agency, Ogilvy One as the digital agency, Ant Savvy as the events agency, Unitel as the production house, KPPR and Stratworks as the public relations agencies, and Starcom as the media agency.

Coke Studio Season 2 will air later this year, creating music with more local artists and more Filipinos.
