This subcollection includes interviews and other raw material from the Rice & Roses program "Music from Filipino Camp." Filipino immigrants have created a unique musical culture that has enriched our community with music that ranges from string bands to jazz and the Honolulu Symphony. Maestros from the plantation string band era talk story and play music. They are joined in this documentary special by impresario Tommy Tomimbang, his daughter Emme, jazz musician Gabe Baltazar and symphony arranger and bass player Angel Pena in this celebration of Filipino culture.
