Maria Pangilinan was born and raised at Balanga City, Bataan. She found music as a great way to vent out her emotions as she seeks something to complete herself.
She started singing by the age of six and has been a part of their church’s choir. Since then, her passion transformed into touching people’s hearts and made herself on stages in front of a crowd. She moved to Osaka, Japan.
After a few years, she was able to make a mark on some renowned Live House and jazz bars around Kyoto and Osaka such as Xavier Louis Vuitton Wine Bar and Restaurant and Selected Repos. She also had several concerts and invitations in both Japanese and Filipino communities. Her latest achievement was being chosen to represent the Philippines at Cannes Festival France, regular singer at DZRH with Morly Alinio and featured at Karen Davila’s Karerin Natin. Not that the world is hit by this fortuitous pandemic, Maria Pangilinan would like to help people heal their wounds through music. Her latest Album “Yakap” will help you to heal your heart. And it is available on all digital platforms.

If you are truly driven to succeed in music, and it means the world to you, you will be able to channel that desire into hard work, and that hard work give you the success you always dreamed of. On the contrary, if you end up doing something you never really cared about, you will never live up to your potential, and you will never feel fulfilled.
