about

The term Binalig, meaning “made different" in the Maguindanaoan language, is the embodiment of change in kulintang music.

In this track, Pantayo explores ways in which we can transform the traditional Filipino gong music by writing a modified part for the Agong, incorporating an additional rhythm with a hand drum, and switching the rhythm of the sarunay from a Binalig to another Kulintang song type, "Sinulog".

about

Pantayo Toronto, Ontario

Pantayo is an all-women kulintang ensemble based in Toronto. Our music is grounded in the traditions of Maguindanaoan & T'boli peoples, but explores the possibility of kulintang influenced by our identities as Diasporic Filipinas.

We take part in staged musical performances & collaborative transmedia projects. We also provide music workshops to community groups.
