Pantayo - Binalig Bahala Na

It's important to place this local kulintang ensemble within the Filipina-Canadian diasporic context that that they want to simultaneously inhabit and problematize; but it's also important not to paint them into an "identity" corner and overlook the fact they're becoming one of the coolest groups in the city.

[Pantayo have posted their entire performance from last year's X Avant Festival up on their bandcamp. They'll also be playing at Night 3 of Wavelength Music Festival 16, Sunday, February 14th at The Garrison.]
