      RAQ FILIPINA

       

      (FILIPINO WORLD MUSIC)

      Due to popular demand following her sold-out CD release concert at the San Jose Jazz Summer Fest, composer and singer Raq Filipina will perform at Hawaiian restaurant and lounge Pa’ina in San Francisco’s Japantown on Sunday Oct 13 from 6:30-8:30 pm. The band will be performing music from her new album, Filipina Roots, produced by legendary world music producer Greg Landau.  She will have Filipino guest musicians like Florante Aguilar, a classic guitar virtuoso and Ron Quesada to play traditional Kulintang.

       

      Raq is an 8-time award winning singer and composer; her new album marks a return to her roots as a Filipina and features original compositions in Tagalog and a diverse mélange of musical styles including Latin and Brazilian rhythms such as tango, bossa nova, and son cubano as well as elements of chill electronica and plenty of electric guitar. Her songs mark a truly new direction in Filipino music; her performances are unforgettably passionate and beautiful!


      "I've never heard anything like it." ~ Samantha, owner of Pa'ina, SF.


      "... Her music brings her unique voice and cultural heritage and mixes it with a global vocabulary to come up with something fresh and yet somehow familiar. She is backed by some of the finest musicians in the Bay Area ....Their integration of modern technology with loops and sounds tracks combined with Raq's stage presence add a theatricality to her performances which makes it a real treat for all the senses. Raq Filipina ushers in a new world order of music; music which incorporates and educates us about our human cultural heritage from the Pacific for a new and captivating sound."

      ~ Arturo Riera, "Mr. Latin Jazz" - Latin Curator of San Jose Jazz Fests


      "It was a magical presentation. The musicians were incredible, playing all manner of instruments which set an entirely mystical mood for her delightful visual and vocal performance." ~ Teresa Alvarado, Board Member - San Jose Jazz
