Meeting with one of my favorite Pinoy pride legendary follk singer/songwriter, Mr. Florante


It was a relaxing day yesterday, August 22, I was sitting in the park. I couldn't believe a familiar face passing by right in front of me with his family.It's Mr. Florante the legendary Filipino folk singer, with his long hair again just like good old days. He was just standing a few feet away from me. But since he was with his family I don't want to approach him I might spoiled his weekend time with them. Fortunately, he turned around and there I had the courage to say hi and shake hands. I told him about my YT channel and a lot of fans were asking of any updates about him. So glad to see and talk to him again. The first time was during the US-Philippines Expo. It was also unexpected to finally met Florante and watched him live. Anyway, back to yesterday's meeting with Florante, he was so nice to talk with and has new song a collaboration with Apple de ap of Black Eyed Peas. He is based here in San Bernardino County, California a few miles drive from my place:). Unfortunately, for the second time meeting with Mr. Florante I didn't have my camera with me. I guess next time I should be ready coz you never know whom you meet somewhere.

hi, thanks for a great site. I am a punk rock baby but i also grew up listening to these pinoy folk rock greats. Please check one of my demos, don't mind the partisan lyrics, wrote it in a time when one presidentiable seemed hesitant to accept a responsiblity offered by the nation. Please comment thanks...
