Pantayo is an all-women kulintang ensemble based in Toronto. They combine percussive metallophones and drums from kulintang traditions of the Southern Philippines with electronic and synth-based grooves. The result is thoroughly original and completely captivating sounds that are transformed through the lived experiences of queer diasporic Filipinas.
