The Soulm8s, a Filipino family band, is gearing up for their upcoming festival tour that will showcase Filipino culture through music and dance performances. The tour is a follow-up to their successful Filipino Concert Tour across the UK, which celebrated Filipino culture through music and dance.
The festival tour will feature musical performances and dances that aim to educate others, especially the younger generations of Filipinos, on the importance of embracing their traditions. The Soulm8s will be joined on tour by a number of talented artists, including theatre actor and DJ Rex Portillano, nurse balladeer Walter Begaso, and teenage rock band The Strum Stix.
The Soulm8s, made up of Jackie, Lloyd, Liam, and Lyris, bring a unique blend of talents and personalities to the stage. Jackie is the lead singer and former music teacher, while Lloyd, a nurse by profession, plays guitar and sings. Their son Liam is the band's 14-year-old drummer who loves jazz and rock music, and their daughter Lyris recently joined the band as a keyboard player and has a passion for plush toys and arts.
