“Bahay Kubo” is one of the most popular Philippine folk songs of all time.
The Musikong Kawayan Bamboo Ensemble is one of the resident performing groups under the PCFI. With the support of the Arts Council of Hillsborough Country and the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners, PCFI’s Music and Instrumental Program has been realized to present and instill Asian and Philippine music awareness among Filipino-Americans, in particular, and the public, in general, through ethnic instrumental and music instructions, musical productions and music composition.
Musikong Kawayan classes are held on Saturdays from 10:00AM at the Bayanihan Arts and Events Center. These classes are free to the public. For more information, please contact the Philippine Cultural Foundation, Inc. at the Bayanihan Arts Center in Tampa, FL.
