Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, November 26) — Ben&Ben will take their fans to their biggest pandemic era concert on Dec. 5.

Members of the local folk pop band on Friday spoke to CNN Philippines' New Day about what to expect from their digital concert "Kuwaderno."

"What we tried to do with this concert is—think of the elements of a live show that really make it a distinct experience—and try our best to put them to an online live experience," lead vocalist Miguel Benjamin Guico said.

The show will feature songs from the band's latest album “Pebble House, Vol. 1: Kuwaderno.”

Guico said the band collaborated with director Paolo Valenciano and the Philippine Educational Theater Association for their upcoming concert to be shot live at the Araneta Coliseum.

How will Ben&Ben replicate the concert experience in a virtual show?

"The answer is just really so simple. It is just the power of imagination. We really have to keep in mind na kailangan talagang i-imagine ang sarili namin (that we need to imagine ourselves) in Araneta with so many people," keyboardist Patricia Lasaten said.

"Kahit sa rehearsals, you have to keep that mindset para rehearsals pa lang, nasasanay ka na, nai-imagine mo ‘yung liwanag, nai-imagine mo na ‘yung sigaw ng mga tao tapos nai-imagine mo rin ang energy," she added.

[Translation: Even during rehearsals, you have to keep that mindset, so you will get used to imagining the lighting and the crowd's screams and energy.]

For Miguel Benjamin Guico, there’s a way to set a digital concert apart from a show with a live audience.

"We know that people are going to be watching through the screens, right? And we can only do so much to interact with them. But then if the story can draw them in then that's also a way of setting this experience apart from an actual live show," he said.
