With strong commitment and determination in keeping their artists realize their big dreams, Sindikato Management, confidently relying on their skills and knowledge, will continue to fight and pursue their aspirations to earn a place in the global stage.
A talent management group called Sindikato was officially launched to the members of the media mid last week at 12 Monkeys Bar (El Pueblo, Ortigas Center). Although the group has been in existence since 2006, back in college, where they shared a passion for video production, Enzo Valdez (the CEO) and Edzon Rapisora (the General Manager), confirmed that it was only in 2016 that they decided go full blast in their goal of helping artists to achieve their dreams in hitting a bigger market.
The business partners are no strangers in the entertainment industry. They have been working in a video production house for years. From creating short films and original content, they ventured into music videos for various local artists. Even as they gained more clients with brand advertising projects, the duo continued to work with musicians. With the vision of developing good talent, Sindikato welcomed a growing roster of artists.
Valdez is not new in the music scene. As the nephew of music icon Basil Valdez, and had worked closely with the late talent manager Wyngard Tracy (manager of Side A, Basil Valdez, and others), he believed that he learned a lot from the masters. So, it was inevitable that Sindikato eventually entered the music industry. Currently, they manage the careers of some popular and emerging artists: CALLALILY, SUD, BEN&BEN, HULYO, FIGHTING RIVER BLINDNESS, UNIT 406, and FERN.
According to Edzon Rapisora, they have always loved collaborating with artists. “One of the reasons we decided to delve into talent management is that we didn’t want to be just a video production house that creates music videos for musicians. We aim to do bigger things for the people we work with, even for artists outside the music industry,” he stressed.
“What’s best about us is that we’re Pro-Artist. We want to give opportunities to our talents and we let them use our platforms; we let them use the skill of Sindikato to help them grow their craft. We believe in their abilities and we want them to spread their talent so that more people can appreciate their music. It our responsibility and our job to look for these opportunities,” shared Valdez.
Beyond managing their talents, Sindikato aims to be a partner to each of their artists in making an impact and influencing the world through their music. The company’s primary goal is to capture a global audience for their artists. In the coming months, expect these artists to be joining and be seen in a lot of international music festivals and will be more visible in social media platforms where their music will be played.
“As musicians, they must work harder, and continue to create good music and must enjoy what they are doing, because at the end of the day, even if the journey is tough, what matters most is the product, the songs and the artists,” Enzo concluded.
