Kami nAPO Muna is the first tribute album in honour of the 1970s Filipino musical group, APO Hiking Society.

Name[edit]

"Kami nAPO Muna" is literally "we already [first]" (loosely, "our turn now") in Filipino, the phrase also being a play on the name Apo. Apo Hiking Society itself has used the word nAPO (na pô, the respectful form of "already") in many concerts and even on a noontime variety show.

Concert[edit]

A tribute concert sponsored by MYX Music Channel was held during the launch of the album, in honour of the trio's contributions to OPM Music.[2] A two-disc limited edition set of Kami nAPO Muna has been released, with the second disc containing Apo Hiking Society's original versions of the tribute tracks. The album is considered the biggest-selling album of 2006 in the Philippines, with 4x Platinum Certification (i.e., more than 125,000 copies sold) in less than six months. It also garnered Awit Awards' Bestselling Album of the Year for 2007.[3][4][5]
