Kulintronica on Tour: Kulintang EDM in New York City

3 Jun songformanong

Taking kulintang electronic dance music to the city that never sleeps for the 116th Philippine Independence Day Celebration.  116 years after Filipinos liberated themselves from the Spanish crown, we close down 15 blocks of Madison Ave. for a parade and fiesta weighing in at 150,000 people, under the theme of “Triumph.”

Many thanks to Mr. Steven De Castro.  Be sure to check out his documentary on political musician Fred Ho, who used kulintang in a number of his compositions; most prominently on “A Song For Manong (The Soundtrack to Part 3 of Bamboo That Snaps Back).”  This musical journey takes you to the struggle of the International Hotel aka the I-Hotel, and features traditional kulintang playing from my teacher Danongan Kalanduyan.
