Early life[edit]

He was born on the 25th of December 1963 in the town of Rosario, La Union. At the age of ten, he began his musical career and learned to play the guitar that he borrows from a neighbor. He made a name in the local music scene in 1982 beginning in little known folk houses and bars.[1]

Music career[edit]

In 1987 he formed the group Buklod together with Rene Boncocan and Rom Dongeto. They produced three albums: Bukid at Buhay, Tatsulok, and Sa Kandungan ng Kalikasan.[2] The band wrote and performed songs about the environment, human rights, and politics.

After the group disbanded, Noel Cabangon went on to record six solo albums; perform solo at music bars and private events;[3]compose songs for the movies and for other artists; and enter the local theater industry as a musical director, as a composer or sometimes as an actor.

He wrote the book Ang bayan ko at lupa: awit ng diwa in 2005,[4]and co-authored Ako'y Isang Mabuting Pilipino (I Am A Good Filipino) in 2012.[5]
