“Our group was formed all the way back in 2016 as the original Carpio Brothers Quartet,” Chris Carpio explains to The Beat Asia. “Over the years, we started to create our own original music and wanted to have a different band identity. Thus, we re-branded the band to Soul Funk'd Ape.”

“We've been preparing this album since 2020 and did most of the work then. Now things have opened, we're looking forward to putting on a one-of-a-kind show.”
