The group was one of the pioneer Filipino American R&B and pop artists that invaded the independent music scene during the late 90s into the early 2000s.
Drop N Harmony, composed of Jose “Sway” Penala, Darrell Seegmiller, Lionel Domulot, and Neomar Aragona is reuniting after a long hiatus to bring their signature soulful sound and seductive rhythm to fans who long for their music, and to a new generation of audiences who would easily groove to their songs.
