Production Details

Until Now: The Women Who Shape Us
Hanggang Ngayon (UNTIL NOW):The Women who Shape Us showcases the tropical, bluesy, ethereal style of indie band, Pandan Leaf Collective performing a special concert of songs inspired by the women who shape our lives. New compositions include Until Now in the Harana traditional courtship music style of the Philippines written by Frances Ancheta and Miss Sixty about a girl growing up during the 1960s in Busan, Korea by Katherine Park.

Pandan Leaf Collective
The Pandan Leaf Collective is something of an Asian Feminist Traveling Wilbury in that the group is comprised of four Asian American women singer songwriters who all separately enjoy independent careers in the Bay Area's music industry. They came together as an occasional way to blend their varied talents, instrumentation and voices. The Collective made its debut at The Lost Church in North Beach on July 7, 2023.
