Tropical Renditions free pdf In "Tropical Renditions" Christine Bacareza Balance examines how the performance and reception of post-World War II Filipino and Filipino American popular music provide crucial tools for composing Filipino identities, publics, and politics. To understand this dynamic, Balance advocates for a "disobedient listening" that reveals how Filipino musicians challenge dominant racialized U.S. imperialist tropes of Filipinos as primitive, childlike, derivative, and mimetic. Balance disobediently listens to how the Bay Area turntablist DJ group the Invisibl Skratch Piklz bear the burden of racialized performers in the United States and defy conventions on musical ownership- to karaoke as affective labor, aesthetic expression, and pedagogical instrument- to how writer and performer Jessica Hagedorn's collaborative and improvisational authorial voice signals the importance of migration and place- and how Pinoy indie rock scenes challenge the relationship between race and musical genre by tracing the alternative routes that popular music takes. In each instance Filipino musicians, writers, visual artists, and filmmakers work within and against the legacies of the U.S./Philippines imperial encounter, and in so doing, move beyond preoccupations with authenticity and offer new ways to reimagine tropical places."
