Hailing from California and starring in American Idol, Jessica Sanchez shows plenty of experience in the limelight. But she is still very active in her roots. She is biracial, with a Mexican father and a Filipina mother. She is a great singer and song writer with plenty of style and talent.
Mikey Bustos is a Filipino Canadian singer and comedian. He is great at making the crowd laugh as well as appreciate his musical talent. He is well rounded in his humor and song selection. Rest assured, if you are not in awe, you will laugh from his performance.
SamaSama Project was launched as one of Chicago’s premiere Filipino Folk Fusion band in 2008. “SamaSama” translated as “united, together” truly live up to their name creating a blend of Filipino folk, rock, ska, and Latin music, inspired by a 1970s musical movement called Manila Sound.
Over the years, the talented group have made their mark showcasing a fusion of Filipino traditional folk and contemporary music at many notable venues. SamaSama Project regularly performs around Illinois and other Midwest States notably at the Windy City Ribfest, Chicago Loop Alliance’s ACTIVATE Series, Old Town School of Folk Music – World MusicWednesday Series, the Chicago Cultural Alliance’s MOSAIC Fundraiser, Chicago Wildlife Conference, Bolingbrook Piyesta Pinoy 2014, Morton Grove Festival of Cultures, Northbrook’s Taste Of Asia. They also performed in Madrid, Spain for the Pope’s World Youth Day MacroFestival Concert for over 12,000 youth.
Inspired by the drive to promote Culture through music and the arts, SamaSama Project continue to captivate audiences with their unique sound that transcends all boundaries.
