Manilatown Ancestral

Caroline Cabading presents, Manilatown Ancestral the culminating student performance of her year-long APICC Community-Engagement Residency teaching pre colonial Southern Philippine music and dance at the International Hotel Manilatown Center. This program offered free monthly beginner-level culture, music and dance instruction to all Bay Area community members interested in exploring tribal Philippine art. Six months into the program a group of five students interested in a more disciplined study of the arts forms were selected to train weekly in preparation for their final community performances bringing together their yearlong immersion in Southern Philippine music, dance, culture and attire.

The “Manilatown Ancestral Ensemble” is excited to be presenting for their friends, family and community at the Sunday June 4th USAAF x Sunday Streets Showcase.
