Composed of Flava Matikz and Knowa Lazarus, Q-York is a Fil-Am hip hop duo whose musical roots can be traced from the golden days of urban music in 80’s and 90’s New York. Their name stands for “Quality — Yields Our Richest Key” and Queens, New York, the place where they began making songs together.

The award-winning duo showcases their diverse choice of music through the tunes they create. Branding their sound as having “local feel with international appeal,” Q-York tracks mostly feature Taglish lines cleverly written and catchy enough to let their message reach more ears. The evident mix of Philippine and Western cultures can be heard in the group’s often upbeat yet always meaningful hits.

Q-York songs highlights “self-empowerment, positivity, spirituality and pride in being true to oneself.”
