Pakaraguian Kulintang Ensemble has been able to reach audiences throughout Southern California thanks in part to the local Fil-Am communities.
One of the largest events we’ve been invited to perform at is FPAC.
FPAC’s website states its mission and purpose as follows
The Association for the Advancement of Filipino American Arts and Culture, also known as FilAm ARTS, is a multi-disciplinary community arts organization whose mission is to advance the understanding of the arts and diverse cultural heritage of Filipinos in the United States. With three public programs – the Annual Festival of Philippine Arts & Culture, the statewide Pilipino Artists Network, and the arts education program, Eskuwela Kultura, FilAm ARTS’ organizational purpose is to engage diverse peoples in cultural arts as a synergistic approach to individual and community self-determination and empowerment.
This is an annual two day event, 30 years running, is held at Point Fermin Park in San Pedro in August and has over 20,000 attendees. For more info click here
