Check out this awesome video of PUP Banda Kawayan playing their version of Planting Rice! Their instruments are made entirely of bamboo, which make this really unique and bubbly sound.
Just to give you a little background, the group was organized in 1973 by Mrs. Gloria Talastas, then principal of the Philippine College of Commerce Laboratory High School and Prof. Calabig, a faculty member.
On our trip to the PUP in Santa Mesa, Manila, we'll be performing with the group and meeting Prof. Calabig! This will be sponsored by PUP Research, Extension & Development Foundation, Inc. (PUPREDFI). The proceeds will be used to fund scholarships and selected research and extension projects of the Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP). PUP is a state university and majority of students come from economically challenged sector of the society.
