RISE for Educ concert 08.10

Watch the hip-hop, reggae concert for lumad schoolchildren this August 10

A free concert featuring Davao and Manila’s reggae and hip-hop artists would be staged this August 10 at Reggae Grill to support the continuing school services for the Manobo evacuees.

The concert is dubbed as Rise for Education and will feature Manila-based hip-hop artist BLKD and Davao hip-hop group South Breed, reggae bands Kamaggong, Lost Tribe, Nairud sa Wadab and Tortang Talong. The venue will be on Reggae Grill along JP Laurel Avenue.

Organizers of the event said no entrance fees will be charge, but instead will request the audience to come with donations such as school supplies and books for some 180 school children who are displaced due to the military occupation in their villages in Davao del Norte.

The event is held to raise awareness and support to the Manobo evacuees.
