On the occasion of the 80th anniversary of the birth of the Manila-born singer-composer and painter Luis Eduardo Aute, Instituto Cervantes de Manila, in collaboration with the Embassy of Spain in the Philippines present “Born in Manila (A Tribute to Aute)” concert.

This event will be held on Tuesday, November 7, at 7:00 PM in the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium at the RCBC Plaza in Makati. The screening of “Con tu latido”, a video documentary produced in 2021 by Instituto Cervantes de Manila will open the event. Filmed in distinct locations in Intramuros, this video features Filipino singers, such as Bituin Escalante and Mark Anthony Carpio, performing some of the songs of Luis Eduardo Aute. This will be followed by live performances of some of the singers including Sheila Ferrer and Toma Cayabyab, who also participated in the recording of “Con tu latido”. Toma, son of National artist Ryan Cayabyab, has arranged the new renderings and versions of Autes’s songs, both those recorded in the documentary and those that will be part of the repertoire to be performed live at the RCBC.

Luis Eduardo Aute was born in Manila on September 1943 during the Japanese occupation. His father worked at the Tabacalera. His grandmother, born in Valencia, was brought to the Philippines during the Spanish era at the age of three. They had a house along Roxas Boulevard (which back then was Dewey Boulevard) that also served as the headquarters of the Japanese troops and later on the Americans. He studied at De La Salle, but the family moved to Spain in 1954 where, years later, Aute would become one of the icons of Spanish music in the second half of the 20th century.
