This event is NOT TO BE MISSED…3 groups honoring & innovating Filipino traditional & rock music, including the Grupong Pendong from the legendary Pinoy folk-rock pioneers Asin (remember the Apl song by Black Eyed Peas? OK, if not…think politically conscious songs about sovereignty set to guitar, reggae, & traditional rhythms)! Show your solidarity for women’s rights & environmental justice, while participating in musical/cultural history in the making! I’ll be sharing a few poems too. 🙂
