1/26/12 Bandung 55 + API Cultural Work (Live Band in Studio!)

Tonight, we have a live band in studio on APEX Express!  Bandung 55 is a newly formed Bay Area-based funk/soul/hip hop band, made up of six Filipino activists, organizers, and 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 ask them 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!!
