AboutTanya Markova is an 8-piece Filipino band/rock collective that was formed in 2006. The band is composed of Harlon Agsoay, Angelo Del Pilar, Philipp Alejandro, Jasper Borbajo, Edson Broce, Rhan Sabas, Kix Chavez, and EJ Guevarra. The band can be easily recognized because of their make-ups and costumes onstage. Each member has their own stage name.

It was initially formed late 2004 by Harlon Agsaoay a.k.a. "Norma Love" (vocalist, co-songwriter, tambourine) and Angelo del Pilar a.k.a. "Iwa Motors" (vocalist, co-songwriter, bell ringer). Iwa immediately thought of an idea to combine sappy melodies and scary caricature-driven lyrics, then they decided to compose songs filled with sarcasm, idiocy, and childish ramblings. During those times the song they've created were only meant to be a joke, with nonsensical titles like "Yak my Bulate", "Opposite Pusit", "Ambot sa Emo" (later known as "Sentimental Value"), "Mahirap Maging Bopis", and "Hoy Bampira ako Takot ka na?" (later shortened to "Bampira" and the first song they've ever completed). It took several months before they could find members who would agree to their concept, and almost 2 years to complete the line-up and perform live onstage.

The band got their name from Filipina actress Tanya Garcia and the last name from Dolphy's gay movie character Markova. It's also a coincidence that an anagram of "Tanya Markova" is "Natay Karovam" or "Natay Karubam", an Ilokano word which means "Dead Neighbor".
