Song of the Bird King
Song of the Bird King is a company based in the Catskill Mountains in New York that is dedicated to creating multi-media projects that feature contemporary and traditional music composed of Indigenous and Urban ecology.
Co-Founders Susie Ibarra and Roberto J. Rodriguez are composers and percussionists whose music has been profoundly influenced by the interconnection of nature and cities. It is precisely at this intersection of Indigenous and Urban ecologies where Ibarra and Rodriguez are compelled to invite cultural dialogue through performing arts and music.
If you are in LA this weekend, I would love to invite you out to the premiere and screening of
The Cotabato Sessions at the LA Asian Pacific Film Festival, Saturday May 10th @ 5:30pm.
I am also inviting traditional Maguindanaon artist Danny Kalanduyan to perform. Danny will perform solo, we’ll play duet and there will be a Q and A after the film with Director Joel Quizon
Thank you again to all of you who kickstarted and funded the post production to help make this happen! The official release of the digital album and film.
Will keep you all posted for the NYC release and screening in late July this summer!
