Pinay power shines strong on the stage of Kasayahan sa Daly City’s TFC Hour with the back-to-back performances of rising rapper and spoken word artist Ruby Ibarra and the first FilipinoAmerican artist to find success in the mainstream music industry, Jocelyn Enriquez.
Enriquez is a Bay Area native, having been born in San Francisco. Emerging from the Freestyle movement of the time, she was the first artist to sign with Classified Records and was quickly deemed by some as the “Queen of Freestyle”.
Enriquez announces her return to the recording studio with that familiar pop/dance sound with the release of her long-awaited single “To Love Again,” that recently dropped on Sep. 28.
Ibarra is a fast-rising rapper who broke into mainstream consciousness with her debut full-length album, Circa91 released a year ago, on October 2017. Since then, this powerful Pinay, master of words and beats, continues to power up, giving voice to Filipino American stories and experiences through her music and poetry.
These two phenomenal women take the stage at Kasayan sa Daly City, a Filipino American History Month celebration, happening on Oct. 13 at the Marchbank from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.. There will be food trucks, arts and crafts, a beer garden, several vendor booths, and entertainment from homegrown talent.
Entertainment throughout the day will be provided by Maddie B, Melvin Sings, Hazel Jane Gloria, Rudy Kalma, Tessie Mystic, Mike Dayao, Jenika Fernando, Guji Lorenzana, the American Center of Philippine Arts, and the Kariktan Dance Company.
Program hosts are Mikey Morla, BA’s Henni Espinosa and Rommel Conclara, Barangay U-S-A’s Gelo, Adobo Nation’s Cheena Crab, Lee Robin Salazar, and Ginger Conejero.
There will be free parking at the DC Station Garage at 2001 Junipero Serra Boulevard, and Marchbank Park is accessible on the second floor. This is a free event and everyone is invited.
