Here comes Filipino American History Month!

24 Sep

Greetings, kulintang fans!

It’s that time of the year, the month of October at the end of the summer season when the Filipino artist community gears up for a final push before settling into the holidays.  October is Filipino-American History Month!  To kick things off, we have an early start with a special screening of “Rescue in the Philippines: Refuge from the Holocaust” at San Francisco’s Asian Art Museum.

The Philippines is rich with history, with multiple layers and story arcs intertwining the contested archipelago.  I consider myself a Philippine history buff but I was surprised to learn about this chapter.  Although much has been said of the Philippines role in the battle for the Pacific, but the topic of Philippines involvement in the European conflict is hardly discussed.

Pictured above is President of the Philippines Manuel Quezon with the Frieder brothers taken in April of 1940.  I am excited to learn this intriguing story, and to provide intermissions with smooth grooves and live kulintang playing.
