The Oakland Asian Cultural Center is trying to raise $3,400 in individual donations by August 20th for a new dance project by Jay Loyola.
Check out their Kickstarter page and contribute anything you can!
In partnership with Oakland Asian Cultural Center, Jay Loyola of American Center of Philippine Arts will be premiering TAGABANUA, a dance interpretation featuring traditional music from the Tagbanua tribe of Palawan, Philippines.
“Taga Banua” (pronounced “tah-gah-bahn-wah”) is a Palawano word that means “from the village.” As an adopted son of the Tagbanua people, Loyola has participated in numerous rituals, dances and cultural practices. Through his research and life experience, he created this dance and music project to share the culture and rich heritage of the Tagbanua to the world and preserve the native dance forms. He hopes to use this project as a tool to assimilate his art into people’s lives and as a basis to strengthen the Filipino community and cultural identity.
