Filipino Singer/Performer Needed in Gwangju

An event in Gwangju set this month requires a Filipino singer or performer

Mr. Roderico Atienza, First Secretary and Consul of the Philippine embassy in Seoul, posted this on the Embassy of the Philippines Seoul’s Facebook homepage:


The Organizing Committee of the Respected Yoon Han Bong Commemorative Project is looking for a Philippine-born individual, male or female, who is willing to perform a folk or traditional Philippine song or dance at the seminar room of the Committee’s office at 6 pm on 19th July (Friday) in Gwangju City, Jeollanamdo. The late Yoon Han Bong, often called “the last fugitive” for having escaped the military dictatorship attempting to arrest him for his involvement in the Gwangju People’s Uprising of 18 May 1980. This Uprising, while ending in failure, marked a watershed in the modern democracy movement and more than decade of activism in South Korea. The efforts of grassroots leaders like Yoon Han Bong, who continued his human rights and social justice activism in the Korean American movement after being granted political asylum in the U.S., led to the end of a series of military dictatorships in South Korea.

The performance will cap the lecture on Philippine culture and history to be delivered by Prof. Kim Dong Yeop, political science specialist from Busan University of Foreign Studies. Apart from the lecture and the Filipino folk song or -dance performance, a film about Jose Rizal will be screened.

This is a great opportunity to share our rich Filipino heritage through music. If you are interested, you may contact Mr. Park at 010-3621-8998.
