Diskarte Namin

Queer performance vocalist, Dwayne Calizo presents  The Toxic Cock-tale: Hold the Retro Virus Please!! The show takes place in real time during the last hour, last act, and closing night of The World Famous Back Alley Sally's Catch a Rising Star No Talent-Talent Show. The final performance is ready to begin so get ready for a ride that will bring you to your knees begging for mercy and wanting more, more, more.

Aerialist Kennedy Kabasares combines theater, static trapeze, movement and monologue with writer/performer Traci Kato-Kiriyama to explore ideas of regret, dreams, sounds, silence, stillness, and the precariousness of being on the edge.

Giovanni Ortega presents Kalayaan (Freedom), a poignantly hilarious inter-disciplinary show that fearlessly embraces while courageously reveals one mans identity as a queer Muslim Pilipino in America. Infusing Modern and Mindanao Folk Dance, he reflects on his past and acceptance of Islam.

Jen & Dan Soriano present Viajeras: A Song Cycle in Tribute to Filipino Overseas Musicians a journey through seven decades of musical migration. Since the late 1800s, Filipinos have made a living from their musical abilities by performing at hotels and clubs around the world. Today, musicians and other performing artists are the Philippines second largest export after domestic workers; more than one million Filipinos work overseas as musicians, composers, and dancers. Viajeras traces the journeys of these Filipino workers, from the jazz age of the 1920s to the pop age of the 1980s.With a combination of jazz standards, pop covers, and original songs, Viajeras is a tribute to the these musicians past and present, including Jens grandfather, Restituto Soriano, a musician who played on cruise ships and with Xavier Cugats orchestra in the 1930s 40s. Viajeras celebrates the heroism of these musicians who have survived in a market of western mimicry, while envisioning a future that values original Filipino creation. Featuring Juan Calaf (drums) and Ron Quesada (bass guitar).

Straight from the underground arises Diskarte Namin (our strategy in Tagalog)  kultural guerillas using music as a weapon to reclaim Filipino pride, and to declare that even after 400 years of colonization  we are still here.   San Francisco born but bred on resistance music from all over the world, Diskarte mixes rock guitar with latin and hip hop beats, reggae and funk basslines,  folk and soul vocals, and indigenous influences from the Philippines.  Since 2000, Diskarte Namin has rocked shows from the Bay to LA to Seattle to the mountains of the Northern Philippines, devoting most of their performances to community events, social justice fundraisers, and political rallies.

Diskarte Namin is: Jen Soriano on vocals, Jasen Ildefonzo on vocals and rhythm guitar, Juan Calaf on lead guitar, Paul Bolick on bass, Tony Daquipa on congas, Dakota Witka on additional percussion, and Mike Cual as emcee.
