Hip Hop culture happens to be one of the many avenues Filipino-Americans have taken to and identify with. It only seems natural to host an benefit that revolves around the Hip Hop culture for the people of the Philippines who have been affected by Typhoon Ondoy.
The Individual Collective Gallery of Vallejo, CA. holds an event called Open Session Saturdays, happening the second and fourth Saturday of each month. Each OSS event consists of live painting, open mic, musical performances, rapping cyphers. I’ve been fortunate enough to witness impromptu jam sessions and to photograph the event a few times.
This upcoming Saturday, the IC Gallery is kind enough to collaborate with a few people to host a benefit for the communities in the Philippines affected by Typhoon Ondoy, aka Typhoon Ketsana. If there is a OSS event to go check out, it’s this one.
