Even though a folk singer, Florante also became a part of the 1970s Manila sound. Manila sound also gave birth to songs which give pride to Filipinos. Heber Bartolome’s “Tayo’y mga Pinoy” is an example. In 2006, Join the Club’s hard rock revival of “Handog” was included in Hopia Mani Popcorn revival album.
