“I want people to aspire for the best, to be excellent and not settle for less because I think that is also kind of a way for us to decolonize ourselves by saying, ‘You can be good. You can be on the main stage  without giving up your identity.’ Having a different rendering [and] letting ourselves believe that we are capable of and that we are deserving of being in a place.” – Alleluia Panis, Kulintang Arts Inc.’s Executive & Artistic Director.

If you haven’t yet, take a listen to our very own Alleluia ‘Manai’ and Irene Faye Duller share some of their most memorable memories of SoMa, Kularts legacy and SoMa Pilipinas Filipino Cultural District in San Francisco.
