World Music Singer Bullet Dumas Stages His First Big Concert Titled 'Usisa' At Music Museum, On October 5

BULLET DUMAS is an independent musician from Tacloban. He started college in UP Tacloban then moved to DIliman. Music started as a pasttime for him, then in college, he became a vocalist for a band called Pruweba. He shone when he joined the Elements Music Camp of Ryan Cayabyab in Dumaguete in November 2010 after he just got his degree in math education from UP Diliman. His raw and contemporary music stylings using an acoustic guitar easily drew the admiration of such local music icons as Mr. C, Joey Ayala and Ebe Dancel. “Without Elements, I’d still be a nobody,” he says.

Born on April 10, 1986, he’d rather not reveal his real name. But he says Bullet has his been his nickname since birth while noted French writer Alexander Dumas is allegedly his distant uncle. He taught high school math for a while at Miriam College. “Pero kapag may class ako, nawawala ang boses ko at hindi ako makakanta sa gigs ko,” he says. “So I stopped teaching na and I now just coach Ultimate Frisbee na sport ni Derek Ramsay.”

He’s been singing regularly for the longest time at Conspiracy Bar on Visayas Ave. In 2014, he released an extended play album with two of his hit songs, “Pssst” and “Ninuno” that gained radio airplay. He’s now managed by Stages Talents of Carlo Orosa, who believes so much in his music.

His concert at Music Museum on October 5, with he himself as musical director, is entitled “Usisa”. Why so? “I want people to be more inquisitive,” he says. “Mag-usisa ka. Lalo sa panaho ngayon, maraming puedeng mangyari. The truth is there, all you have to do is search for it. I will sing mostly my own compositions, plus some cover versions. Basically, I want to surprise my audience, kasi big concert ko ito so I don’t want to disclose kung ano exactly ang mga gagawin ko para may element of surprise.”

Accompanying him on stage are guitarist John Apura, keyboardist Jesper Mercado, percussionist Jacques Duffort, drummer Mark Villaba and bassis Yuna Reguerra.

Tickets to “Usisa” are available at Music Museum, 721-0635 and Ticket World at 891-9999.
