In 1995, Philippine hip-hop trio Kulay released its debut album, 100000 Pesos Worth of Karma, a fine effort encompassing a myriad of rhythm & blues styles, including rap, soul, and old-school R&B. Aside from "Summatime," a classy take on George Gershwin's classic, all songs were composed by group leader Boom Dayupay (born Lino Dayupay), who arranged all the tracks and also produced the album. Most of the vocals, however, are handled by Kulay female members Jeannie Oakman and Radha Cuadrado, whose singing is mellifluous and close-knit, while the instrumentation is provided by highly compatible session players. On "Summatime," Gershwin's memorable melody is given the Kulay treatment, funkified by a syncopated hip-hop beat and an ethereal, jazz-inflected trumpet line. "Allryte" has a gospel-based sound to it, soulfully sung by Oakman and Cuadrado. Also notable here and throughout the album is the acoustic guitar work of sessionist Peter Dejarme, who also plays strong, fluid bass guitar. Dejarme also plays electric guitar on the album. Dayupay's strong songwriting skills lay a firm foundation for Kulay's sound, and many songs are written in the traditional "verse-chorus-verse" format. "Satisfyd" is a beautiful soul outing, smooth and silky; "Let's Do It Again" is sensual and warmly honed. The songs are performed predominately in English, though Tagalog, the Philippines' national language, is also used. Kulay's debut effort garnered media attention for the group, but, unfortunately, the album didn't sell well, according to the label (there are no sales charts or SoundScan in the Philippines).
