ZOS!MO is the singer-songwriter moniker of Los Angeles-based – specifically South Pasadena – Filipino American artist Zosimo Quibilan Jr. who plays original Tagalog indiepop and rock. Z, as he is known among friends, has lived in South Pasadena for the past 15 years with his wife and family. With the chance to share his music with his current hometown he is excited to play at Jeweled Universe.
Why Tagalog songs? One reason is Z wants to help promote Filipino American culture. Z has always felt that singing in a different language can inspire awe in the audience and thought Tagalog could have that effect. “While Tagalog is not the only language in the Philippines, promoting it here builds a bridge to better understand Filipino Americans,” says Z, “our roots and how our culture helps make the multicultural experiment that is America, even richer.”
