From being a "jamming" group of visual and performance artists way back in 1989, Pinikpikan has now evolved into a music band that pioneers the world music scene in the Philippines.

Intense, powerful, soulful, sensual. Free the mind, feel the vibes, groove with the spirits. We invite you to experience Pinikpikan. A bit of our history: It all started in 1989 at the first Baguio Arts Festival, Baguio City, home to many of the most renowned contemporary Filipino artists. After the Festival's opening, participating artists from Manila and the provinces had joined up with members of the Baguio Arts Guild for a dinner at the Cafe by the Ruins, Baguio´s homegrown cultural center. As they sat around the Café's "dap-ay" (a circular rock installation found in the tribal villages of the Cordillera where elders hold their council and initiation rites), someone picked up a couple of pieces of pinewood meant for the fire raging at the centre.

Another picked up some bamboo segments. Rum and beer bottles were used. So were covers of pots and pans. Rocks were pounded.

Sticks flailed. A rhythm was born influenced by the traditional beats of the surrounding indigenous Igorots. The well known rock band The Blank joined in with lead and bass guitars. A keyboard was set up.

Saxophones and flutes appeared. The indigenous Bisaya and Ilonggo contingents from the southern islands of the Philippines connected with their melodies. The music was called "Rock ‘n´ Runo" (a reed found in the highlands similar to thin bamboo) as opposed to rock ‘n´ roll. Visual artist and founding member of the Baguio arts Guild, Manong BenCab named it PINIKPIKAN.
