OasiwasACPA Rondalla
00:00 / 05:00

ACPA Rondalla was established in 2009 as one of the organizations’ ongoing programs, led by Herna Cruz-Louie. The ensemble started as music accompaniment for the SEED Youth Program, and went on to perform with local community organizations and dance troupes.

We expanded our reach by providing Rondalla music workshops at the Oakland Asian Cultural Center in 2011. Soon after, we began mentoring collegiate Filipinx-interest organizations at USF and UC Davis for their annual Pilipino Culture Nights, and have continued to develop aspiring musicians in the art of Philippine folk music and dance. Today, ACPA Rondalla also provides Rondalla workshops and cultural mentorship to organizations at SF State, SJSU, and Little Manila Rising in Stockton.
