The Love of Vicentica Foundation Donates Musical Instruments to Diptan Band
The Love of Vicentica Foundation strongly believes that where there is music, there also are peace, love and harmony. When one’s talents in music and arts are harnessed and expressed, an individual’s finest feelings come out.
In April 2017, The Love of Vicentica Foundation donated musical instruments to Diptan Band, a band which is composed of men musicians which have been in existence for more than forty years. The band plays in weddings and church functions, almost for free.
Diptan is a place in Basco, Batanes that is also known as Brgy. San Antonio, derived from it’s patron saint, St. Anthony of Padua. For the past ten years, The Love of Vicentica Foundation has been donating monetary prices for participants in the singing and dancing contests that are held every 13th of June – the feast of St. Anthony.
