WHAT'S IN THE FUTURE
In the near future, we will be developing a "Political Section" of the site.
Artists are often the "mouthpiece" in verbalizing our concerns, worries, dreams, goals, etc. To understand why our artists have a need to communicate, we have developed the "Timeline" section to better understand our past.
In honor of Easter, Asian AmericanArtistry we have featured Christian artists within the Asian Pacific American communities throughout the US. These music ministries are Junko (based in Southern California), Church of Rhythm (based in Chicago), the Katinas (based in Nashville) and Big Dog Small Fence (based in Southern California.
These groups run the gamut from ska (Big Dog Small Fence) to r&b/hard-hitting gospel (The Katinas) to techno pop (Church of Rhythm) to Amy Grant type of Christian pop (Junko) and are great examples of the diversity that exists within this specific music genre.
BOOK REVIEW - In honor of Easter, we are featuring a book review
from Pastor Russell Yee of Pastor Ken Fong's "Pursuing the Pearl."
FILM REVIEW - Romeo Must Die - the latest film from Warner Bros. Featuring Jet Li, Aayilah, DMX and many others in this Joel Silver film has a lot of "buzz" around town. Will it be a romance, will it have great fighting, will they kiss, will the Asian guy finally win, will there be a "make-out" scene, will they.... will they.....
FILM REVIEW - Snow Falling in Cedars was another film that was creating a lot of attention in the media. Check out Patsy Sakuma's review that covers a controversial time in history (the internment of Japanese Americans during WWII) in a very straightforward fashion.
