Honorably tagged as “Ambassadors of Philippine Music,” Sounds of Manila (SOM) has been the recipient of several awards for preserving and promoting Original Philippine Music (OPM) in the United States. These awards include the Pan American Concerned Citizens Action League (PACCAL) Award, the Outstanding Filipino Americans in New York (TOFA-NY) Award, and the National Federation of Filipino American Associations’ (NaFFAA) Outstanding Filipino American Achiever’s Award.

SOM’s music ranges from the classic ‘60s and ‘70s to the most revered songs of the ‘80s and ‘90s; its repertoire is a blend of popular music, light rock, light jazz, R&B, and most especially OPM.
