The countryÆs number 1 music company MCA Music (Universal Music Philippines) welcomes another top artist to its OPM foldùnone other than the PhilippinesÆ Queen of Bossa Nova SITTI.
She joins its roster of home grown artists which includes bands such as Urbandub, Pupil, Franco, Chicosci, The Oktaves, Tanya Markova and Pedicab and solo acts Nyoy Volante, Sabrina, Solenn Heussaff, Loonie, Barbie Forteza and Ron Henley.
Present during the contract signing was MCA Music (Universal Music Philippines) President Ricky R. Ilacad who incidentally was the one who signed up Sitti during his term as head of another record label. Also present were MCA Music executives Wilson Cruz (Marketing & Sales Director), Kiko Guevarra (A & R Manager) and Mark Bonifacio (OPM Label Marketing Manager).
ôIÆm so happy to be working again with Sir Ricky who signed me up for my first album. It was a reunion of sorts for us. I am likewise excited to be working with MCA Music people and be part of such wonderful family,ö Sitti said.
Sitti started the bossa nova trend in the Philippines when she released her debut album with hits ôPara Sa Akinö, ôTattooed On My Mindö and other covers she interpreted with her bossa touch. Since then, several bossa nova artists followed suit but nobody beat the one who started it all which was proven by strong record sales and demand for shows here and abroad. No wonder she was called the PhilippinesÆ Queen of Bossa Nova. She released 6 albums- majority of which have reached Gold and Platinum status and 1 remix album.
She is currently part of the ASAP Sessionistas. She also dabbled into hosting, acting, and theatre.
