Manila, 29 July 2016 – Makati Shangri-La Manila, the city’s premiere luxury hotel, redefines music experience for jazz aficionados and music enthusiasts with its Jazz and Themed Nights hosted by SAGE Bar.

As lively music permeates every corner of SAGE Bar to set the atmosphere of casual elegance, the bar’s modern interiors offers an intimate touch so friends and business colleagues can chat and unwind after a long busy day.

As a trendsetter in partnering with the best of the best, Makati Shangri-La Manila’s SAGE Bar is hosting regular shows by talented international and local acts.

Headlining the Jazz nights from Mondays to Fridays is international performer Henry Katindig who is known in the Asian jazz circuit as a piano genius famed for playing straight-ahead bop or silky smooth jazz-fusion. The jazz maestro’s refreshing style and rhythmic sophistication clearly point out why he has become one of the few anointed keepers of the jazz torch in the Philippines and Asia.

Joining Henry Katindig and his Trio onstage for each day of the week are stellar and multi-awarded singer-performers. They include jazz singer Jeannie Tiongco known for her stylistic mainstream and fusion jazz renditions, the multi-talented Maffy Soler, 2013 Aliw Awardee Angela Vera, and Philippine Idol 2007 finalist Maya Banawa.
