Amazing solo piano performances by an old man named Vidalito Infanto or also known as Lolo Bong.

MANILA, PHLIPPINES -- This is an exclusive coverage of back-to-back solo performances by a wandering pianist inside a music store (Lyric) at SM Megamall who we happened to pass by while he was playing for the crowd catering his mad piano skills to give joy to others.

After he performed, we invited him for a short interview. He is Vidalito "Bong" Infante from Sampaloc, Manila. Lolo Bong began to play piano since he was six and a half (6-1/2) years old. He is now 66 years old, as of writing this article. He has been a solo performer in the past 6 decades or so.

Lolo Bong had never been part with any of the bands or joined any competition but did attend some organ and piano recitals. He also never had proper education on music. He was influenced by Italian piano music.

His parents' professions were not in the music industry either though he told us that they loved to dance during their free time. Lolo Bong educated himself by studying how to read and understand the musical notes and practiced his ears to get familiarised the sounds of each notes as well as his hands for dexterity.

When we first arrived to the scene, he was playing some medley and he finished. He then performed another one which we believed the title is "Tico-Tico no Fubá" and the second one is "Granada" which according to him is his masterpiece.



After watching him, we know for sure that you were blown and amazed by his mad skills on playing piano given that he is already a senior at the age of 66, but his dexterity can be compared with the young pianists. At the bottom, watch his masterpiece "Granada."

As we were interviewing Lolo Bong, he then stated that playing piano is his 'bread and butter' since then. He is at Rockwell Power Plant during Sundays from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and at United Doctors Medical Center -- Welcome Rotonda during Mondays and Tuesdays from 9am to 12 noon.



Aside from the two titles that we mentioned above, he also included in his medley the titles "Brazil", "Quando Quando", and "La vie en rose."

Before we part ways, we asked Lolo Bong if he wants to send a message to aspiring musicians. He simply says:
"If you are really to study any instruments, dapat tiyaga (perseverance is the key)."
