About: Eskilera, from Cagayan de Oro City.

"Magical" Different types of songs, from different types of genres helps us create to what is now our Song's ranging from love song's down to Alternative that... and a few Jazzy type of materials. The Band with its original members, Mark Amarga and Jorim Sual started as a Jamming session on the Eve March of 2000 that lead us to begin to what was formerly our band before, "switched band". Starting From Norman Sumaylo(Lead Guitar) that was introduced because of his unique grooves in stramming his instrument, the Guitar. Anthony Medina was introduced because of his melodic voice that suited our types of music. And PIERRE MARIE COSSID, was introduced by a respected band from Lantaw Cagayan by Jun Sia, because of her voice its like Dolores O'Riordan the Cranberries, Avril Lavinge. Jorim Sual and Mark Amarga are neighbors, aside from that they are what we call "CHILDHOOD FRIEND". Eskilera was Formed on 2009, after months of scrutiny on what would be the band name now known as "ESKILERA BAND" 

1). Who was your hero during your childhood? And what about now? Fave hero? now? - I used to like Wolverine, he's kinda tough and a principled superhero, but now as reality gets to have its bite, I have my Dad and Mum as my Superheroes, without them there could have been no "Me".
