Next March annual Philippines festival Malasimbo is celebrating its 5th anniversary and has announced the first international act, Taylor McFerrin.

If that name sounds familiar, it's because you might remember his Dad, Bobby McFerrin, who wrote the 1989 hit 'Don't Worry, Be Happy'. Whilst he may have followed in his old man's footsteps, Taylor's tastes lie in the electronic realm, releasing his debut LP 'Early Riser' on Flying Lotus' Brainfeder imprint earlier this year.

For its 5th year Malasimbo returns to the tropical gardens of Puerto Galera in Oriental Mindoro with a lineup that will boast an array of electronic and indie acts. Early bird tickets are on sale now here. Stay tuned to Pulse for more details in the coming weeks.
