Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Archiving Filipino American Music in Los Angeles (AFAMILA) was as a yearlong archiving and documentation project carried out by the UCLA Ethnomusicology Archive and Kayamanan Ng Lahi Folk Dance. Support for the project was provided by a UCLA in LA grant from the UCLA Center for Community Partnerships. AFAMILA began in July 2003 and ended in June 2004. During that time a collection of over 200 audiovisual recordings documenting Filipino-American expressive culture in LA was established at the Archive. Previously existing collections of Filipino and Filipino American materials were accessioned into AFAMILA between July 2003 and June 2004.
This year-long UCLA in LA funded community partnership had four main objectives: 1) expanding the Archive's Filipino collections; 2) increasing access to recordings already held by UCLA and the community; 3) producing a list of Filipino sound recordings, audiovisual recordings, and other resources that are currently a part of the Archive's holding; and 4) hosting an end-of-the-project symposium at UCLA.
