The Ensemble was established in 1986 by Cristina Castro under the music direction of classical/folk guitarist, Michael Dadap. Since its founding, the Ensemble has completed three international tours and performed at numerous colleges and folk festivals throughout the Eastern United States.

Their July 1990 tour of the Philippines was highlighted by a special performance before then-President Corazon Aquino at Malacañang Palace. In April 1993, the group gave a special tribute performance in honor of Nitoy Gonzales, the beloved Filipino rondalla maestro, composer, and songwriter. In November that same year, the group took part in a special performance at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York in honor of the visiting Philippine President Fidel V. Ramos. The following year, the Ensemble was again invited to perform for President Ramos at the Westin Hotel in Boston.

In 1994, the Ensemble went on a three-week European concert tour of Belgium, Germany, The Netherlands, Austria and England. Their first full length CD, Crossing Over, was recorded and released in 1995. In 1998, in celebration of the Centennial of the Philippine Republic, the group completed a 3-week/18-performance tour of the Philippines highlighted by a performance at the Cultural Center of the Philippines.
