Pantayo (Toronto)

Pantayo is an all-women lo-fi R&B gong punk collective based in Toronto. Combining percussive metallophones and drums from kulintang traditions of Southern Philippines and synth-based electro grooves, they represent an exciting mix of tradition and innovation.

antayo has been featured in Noisey, CBC Music, Musicworks Magazine, and was listed in the Now Magazine’s Toronto Musicians to Watch in 2018: Indie Edition. The band lists performances at Canada150, The Music Gallery's X Avant Festival, Wavelength Festival, Nuit Blanche Toronto and the Halifax Jazz Festival in its impressive repertoire.

Scary Bear Soundtrack is an Ottawa-based indie dream pop project fronted by multi-instrumentalist Gloria Guns, prominently featuring synths, layered three-part vocal harmonies, and reverb guitar sounds processed through chorus pedals and vintage amps. Their critically acclaimed song about gender-based violence “Fault Lines” made it to the national final top 4 in CBC’s Searchlight Competition for Canada’s Best New Artist in 2015. The band has played at numerous festivals including Ottawa Bluesfest, Mirror Mountain Film Festival, MEGAPHONO, JUNOfest, Ottawa Race Weekend, and Folk on the Rocks in Yellowknife, as well as the North West Territories Pride Festival. Their last EP “Ovayok Road” was written and produced in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, where Gloria used to live.

General Assembly is wheelchair accessible, washrooms are accessible and gender-neutral.
