The Loboc Ambassador Rondalla is a group of people playing different kinds of instruments near the Loboc River. Also known as the Loay River, the Loboc River is one of the most popular destinations in the island of Bohol. The river cruise, with free lunch or dinner is one of the most visitors of Bohol because it is not a usual activity found in many places in the country. It is usually included in a cheap Bohol tour package as it is not very expensive and the tourists get to know Bohol very well.
Before one reaches the riverboat, he will pass by the Loboc Ambassador Rondalla, playing native and modern music using only their string instruments such as guitar, bass, and bandoria. A few of them wear native hats made of bamboo skin but all of them wear white shirts to look clean in front of the domestic and foreign tourists. Before the group was organized, only a couple of them serenade the tourists until the government decided to give these group, a combination of normal and blind people, a chance to let the visitors hear their music.
The Loboc Ambassador Rondalla has been playing sweet and old music for years. Their main purpose of playing the instruments is to let everyone know the peaceful tune of original Boholano music. At times, they play modern music for a livelier touch but most of the time you will hear some nice music of the 80s or 90s.
If you are planning of trying the Loboc River Cruise, you will surely experience and hear the music of the Loboc Ambassador Rondalla. Do not hesitate to give them a “Love Gift” or a donation if you think their music soothes the savage beast.
