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.

What will the money be used for?
Funds raised through this Kickstarter campaign will help fund production costs for the show and support the artists involved in this amazing project! The East Bay Community Foundation will graciously match every $1 up to $3,400 and we need to raise individual donor funds in order to receive this match by August 20! The show is tentatively scheduled to premier at the Oakland Asian Cultural Center in May, 2012.
