Description

"Pamana" (Legacy) - Celebrating Heritage Through Our Children is a two-hour concert featuring the junior members and students of Filipino folkdance classes of the SAMAHAN Filipino American Performing Arts & Education Center at two locations. Come and watch our youth celebrate their cultural heritage and perform with grace and skill popular Filipino folk dances. Live music accompaniment is provided by the acclaimed Samahan Rondalla and the Pakaraguian Kulintang Ensemble.

As in SAMAHAN’s annual concert of Philippine dances and music, the repertoire for the “PAMANA” concert is presented in four “dance suites” based on regional origin and historical influence. Two suites of the “PAMANA” repertoire feature tribal rituals and dances of the indigenous peoples of the Cordilleras in Northern Luzon and of Mindanao in Southern Philippines. Performances are accompanied with the tribes’ traditionally distinct percussion music played by the Pakaraguian Kulintang Ensemble. The two other suites performed with live Rondalla music accompaniment are the “rural” dances of the Philippine country side and the Spanish influenced Maria Clara dances, carefully selected and choreographed for our youthful performers.

Filipino folk dances and music performed in festivals, rituals, celebrations, weddings and even courtships portray the people’s rich culture and traditions. The diversity reflects influences of various races, such as, Chinese, Indian, Indonesian, Malay, Spanish and American, who came to stay in the islands as migrants, traders or colonizers throughout the history of the Philippines.
