Filipino hip hop artist Kiwi rocks the Plaza April 16

April 15, 2009

ASAP Concerts and Asian/Pacific American Student Service, or APASS, present Filipino hip hop artist Kiwi in conjunction with Asian Fest and Food Fest. Come out and enjoy APASS' legendary Food Fest, with food from around the world, and listen to a true hip hop artist rock the Plaza.

Hip hop noon-1 p.m. Thursday

Kiwi's body of work is telling. He has rocked shows up and down California, as well as Seattle, Chicago, New York City, Honolulu, and Florida, sharing the stage with the likes of Medusa, Common, the Visionaries, Blue Scholars, Black Eyed Peas, Dilated Peoples and others.

His library of music includes Native Guns' Barrel Men and Stray Bullets Mixtape CDs, and his classic first solo album Writes of Passage: Portraits of a Son Rising (which is part of the syllabus in San Francisco State's Filipino-American Literature Class).

Radio host, workshop facilitator

He was also the former host/producer of Apex Express on 94.1FM KPFA in Berkeley, and currently coordinates and co-facilitates the Hip Hop Workshop series for young folks at San Francisco's Filipino Community Center.

Most recently, Kiwi had the honor of being featured as a keynote speaker at the 2007 Sandiwa Conference.

Asian Food Fest April 16 & 21

Tired of the regular food options on campus? APASS will be selling teriyaki beef sticks or chicken, vegetarian curry, rice and beverages on the Lory Student Center Plaza from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, April 16 and Tuesday, April 21
