APEX Express

APEX Express – January 26, 2012

Tonight, we have a live band in studio on APEX!  Bandung 55 is a newly formed Bay Area- based funk/soul/hip hop band, made up of 6 Filipino activists/organizers/musicians. They’ll bless APEX with a few live performances throughout the night, and we’ll sit down with them for intimate interviews to hear their history as a band and as organizers, and to ask why art is a form of their political work.  

We’ll also talk more about how API’s have used culture in historical political movements, here in the US and in our homelands – and we’ll bring back the voices of critical API political artists such as Chris Iijima and Mike Dream.  Don’t miss this show!!

Hosted by Ellen Choy.
