Ligaw (Courtship) 2-Part Series by Andrei Julian – Starts June 13/14


This is a two-part series that will celebrate the romanticism of the Filipinos. We will talk about Filipinos’ subtle and indirect art of expressing love and courtship. Discover our culture’s romantic side as we convey love with music, dance, and poetry. Let us remember how our lolos and lolas declare love through romantic love songs, reciting poems, writing letters, gift-giving, and even through servitude. Relive tuksuhan. Relive tulaan. Relive harana. Relive the Filipino’s art of ligaw.
