August 20: Musical Journey with Heroes
The first Musical Journey with Heroes event will happen on August 20, 7-10 PM at the Auditorium of the Bantayog ng mga Bayani Foundation EDSA corner Quezon Avenue and will feature acoustic performances from LAPIS musician-composers Chickoy Pura, Jana Garcia, Ada Marie Tayao, Dedong Marcelino, Karl Ramirez at ang Pordalab, and more.
This is a collaborative series of music events initiated by the League of Authors of Public Interest Songs - LAPIS and the Bantayog ng mga Bayani Foundation. Through a coming together of composers and musicians - from luminaries of protest music in the Philippines to the new generation of singer-songwriters, we aim to celebrate the lives of those who fought tyranny and dictatorship as we continue to educate more people, especially the Filipino youth, why we must #NeverForget.
Amidst the planned burial of the late dictator at the Libingan ng mga Bayani, this initiative is in solidarity with the groups, communities, families, and individuals who protest the burial and assert that #MarcosIsNotAHero.
Join us on August 20, 2016, 7-10PM at the Bantayog Auditorium, Bantayog complex, the first in a series, as we fill the night with music celebrating real Filipino heroes who stood up for freedom and democracy.
