KZ Tandingan taking it one step at a time
Coke Studio has been a vital part of the local music scene for years. It has been a great instrument in bringing people together through music. And now more than ever, Coke Studio is aiming to bring comfort and joy in the hearts and ears of the Filipino people through world-class music of local artists during this pandemic.
After realizing that the lockdown won’t be ending as soon as she hoped, KZ learned that she should focus on the present. However, it wasn’t easy since KZ loves to plan ahead. “Let’s just say that I’m a planner. If kaya kong planuhin ang buong taon, I would. And I actually did… but ayun, Corona happened. Medyo na-learn ko to just take each day as it comes. Kasi mahirap magplano ngayon,” KZ shared.
Since most of what is going on in the present is happening online, KZ knew she had to do just that. “Sa industry na ‘to, if you don’t learn how to adapt, maiiwan ka talaga.” So, KZ took the time to learn how to create content online. In addition, she taught herself to record, mix, and produce music at home.
KZ expressed her excitement over Coke Studio, which became the avenue for her to see her bandmates again after more than six months. Looking forward to creating music with them again, KZ acknowledged the importance of music at a time like this. “Music ang palaging pinupuntahan ng tao for comfort, so sobrang nakakatuwa na may ganito ang Coca-Cola, na kumbaga pwede pa rin natin samahan ang mga kababayan natin through music kahit hindi natin sila physically nakakasama.”
Today, KZ takes comfort in knowing that her family is okay and that she gets to talk to them every single day. Admitting how the situation we are in is difficult and how we must all find ways to feel good, KZ is living in the moment and is moving forward one step at a time.
