Para sa inyo mga kababayan konsyerto ng mga musikerong Filipino sa Toronto, Canada. Darating ang araw na matugtugan din namin kayo diyan sa CNMI.  - Boboy Doromal (Lolita and the Boys)

Lolita Carbon of the Filipino folk-rock group, ASIN joined past members Boboy Doromal and Boy Militar, and the band, Banyuhay Ni Heber, to perform in a concert and clubs last week in Toronto, Canada.

In the 1970s and 1980s the Filipino music from both bands provided inspirational messages to revolutionaries, environmentalists and human rights activists working for change in the Philippines.

Lolita Carbon, Boboy Doromal and Boy Militar, who played together in ASIN and then the original Lolita and the Boys, recorded Usok and Ganyan lang.  The groups toured the Philippines in the 1980s. For the last three years they have reunited to perform in Canada. This year local artists from Toronto: Kaye Viray, Ramon Estaris and drummer, Glen performed with the group.

Heber Gonzalez Bartolome is a musician, poet and painter from Cabanatuan City, Neuva Ecijas, Philippines. He  graduated with a degree in fine arts from the University of Philippines. Bartolome is the founder of Banyuhay, a folk-rock protest band. Some of his well-known songs are “Nena” and “Tayo’y Mga Pinoy.” Heber performed with his brothers, Jesse and Levi and drummer Ami, all from the Philippines.
