New Creation Band, a band with all its members from the Philippines, had been with us for a stretch of five months, performing nightly at Bamboo House, our lively entertainment outlet.
The service contract for the band was extended for a further period of two months after expiration of the initial three-month duration due to popular demand.
We had to bid farewell to them on August 17 when the term of service came to a close -well ,as the saying goes : all good things must come to an end.
Filipinos are renowned for being musically talented and their ingenuity has earned huge foreign reserves for the nation by performing abroad. In short, export of musical talents has long become an integral part of the Philippines' earning base.
I took a snapshot of them before they left.
