PDUB HARANA PROJECT LAUNCHES
PDUB Youth travel back to a simpler time, courtesy of the stories and musical expertise of elders from the Silver Lake Adult Day Health Care Center (SLADHCC). With generous funding from The Alliance of California Traditional Arts (ACTA), the PDUB Harana Project engages local youth and elders in the process of cultural transmission, using music as a vehicle for intergenerational cultural and narrative exchange. Participating Elders, many of whom are long-time haranistas, teach PDUB Youth the art of the harana, or serenade: its melodic guitar music, sweet harmonies and cultural significance.
Participating Elders include: Melinda Abrenica, Nestor Agudo, Greg Albarillo, Erlinda Arcebal, Ted Atento, Cleotilde Bisnar, Thena Borgonia, Annie Cabrera, Pete Estrada, Rosalina Gatila, Ronald Tulabut. With invaluable project facilitation from Mila Anguluan-Coger and rehearsal space courtesy of Lisa Chung, owner, Silver Lake Adult Day Health Care Center.
