Lockdown can't keep Raymund Marasigan from making music. Since the quarantine began, he has released a new single with Sandwich, collaborated with gloc-9 for 'Gera Gera', participated in several livestream performances, finished a 30-day music project called Cabin Fever, and started a weekly podcast, Soup of the Week.
Last month, Marasigan kicked off a new virtual jam series called Stay Home And Form A Band, encouraging fans and aspiring musicians to join him and send their takes on the songs. He's been taking requests from fans, with the Eraserheads' 'Dahan-Dahan' from Natin99 and Ultraelectromagneticpop's 'Ligaya', as his first two virtual jams.

The next episode will be airing on Saturday (05/02) at 8 AM, featuring 'Sembreak'. "Right now, I really miss my friends, and somehow I feel a little bit better playing this knowing that I'll see them when this vacation is over," Marasigan shares on YouTube.
Check out some of the collaborative performances here:
