First Ever Pinay Jazz Concert
We can always use an evening of good music in times of economic hardship -- and jazz fills that bill.

Filipinos for Affirmative Action (FAA) invites you the first ever Pinay Jazz Concert on Thursday, April 16th at the Oakland Asian Cultural Center in historic Oakland Chinatown.   Pinay Jazz will spotlight the contributions of Filipina jazz vocalists to this uniquely American genre.  

Were proud to present a cross-generational cast of talent that will perform classic jazz and Latin jazz standards.  Many of the performers also write, arrange and perform original compositions. This special line-up includes:

Josie Canion, Pinay jazz pioneer and recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award by the San Francisco Filipino American Jazz Festival, has been performing since the 1950s.

Prelude, daughters of Josie Canion, Georgie Leong, Stevie Wallage and Jody Ente, who formerly performed as the 70s pop group the Third Wave.

Ann Marie Santos Andres, pianist, coach, singer and composer, winner of the prestigious Star Search of Asia has also made regular appearances on TV and stage shows in her career.

Raquel Berlind, established her reputation as a Latin singer in the Bay Area, and has received awards for best composer and best performer in 2000, and again in 2005 at La Festival de la Cancion Latino-Americana.

Angel Georecha Ventura, a 20 year-old singer, songwriter, musician and actress from the Bay Area who has appeared in numerous plays and often accompanies her performances by sharing her vocal, piano and guitar playing talents.

Performances will be accompanied by the Art Khu Trio

In the spirit of recognizing accomplished women, we will  honor Tessie Guillermo for her outstanding leadership and contributions not only to the Filipino community, but also for communities of color nationally.  She has been an advocate for reducing the digital divide in her role as CEO of ZeroDivide, an expert in the field of health policy development as former CEO of APIA Health Forum, and as a co-founder of The Presidents Advisory Commission on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders is tireless in her efforts to promote the empowerment of the Asian Pacific Islander community.  ABS-CBN and Balitang Amerika reporter Henni Espinosa will emcee the benefit event.

We hope you will join us on this evening of music and celebration.  Sponsorship opportunities are available, and your organization can expect to reach more than 300 community members and leaders who will be on hand to catch this rare performance.  Please contact us for sponsorship details.
