Kamusta! We are the Tita Collective, award winning multidisciplinary artists based in Canada. We dance, we sing and we will make you snort-laugh halo halo through your nose. In our podcast, we will be chatting about Filipin* arts and culture as a reflection of our lives as Filipinas in the diaspora. We might even bring some guests along the way, from fellow Filipin* artists to our very own Titas. So don’t miss an episode anak! Come chika chika with your Titas!
Find us on social media at Tita Collective on Facebook, @tita.collective on Instagram, and @tita_collective on Twitter!
Salamat for listening!

Episode 3 – Magkasama (Together)
In this episode, inspired by the Pinoys on Parliament conference in Ottawa, the Titas discuss “Magkasama” which means “Together”: they discuss what it means to be a community in the context of the pandemic (this was recorded before the world went into self-quarantine), challenges they have faced with “togetherness” in the Filipin* context and why it is important to encourage cross-generational friendship. We wanted to dedicate this episode to the fearless folks on the front-line, which include workers in healthcare, transit, grocery stores, pharmacies, who are battling COVID-19, from the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for everything you are doing.
