Caregivers Residency


Pantayo is an all-women lo-fi R&B gong punk queer collective based in Toronto. They combine percussive metallophones and drums from kulintang traditions of Southern Philippines and synth-based electro grooves. We were introduced to Pantayo via artist & filmmaker Jake Meginsky and have been addicted since – and we’re delighted to welcome them to Counterflows for their European debut performance.
Past notable projects by Pantayo include performances at Vancouver New Music, Halifax Jazz Festival, Nuit Blanche Toronto, Canada150, X Avant Festival, Wavelength Festival; kulintang gong/percussion workshops with Girls Rock Camp Toronto in partnership with Toronto Public Library and at Tone Deaf Festival Kingston; and a collaboration with YAMANTAKA // SONIC TITAN for Severed video game soundtrack (Drinkbox Studios, 2016).

They have been featured in Noisey (2016), CBC Music for International Women’s Day 2017, a cover story in Musicworks Magazine in Summer/Fall 2017, Now Magazine‘s Toronto musicians to watch in 2018: Indie Edition, and Vancouver’s The Georgia Straight in 2019
