Greetings from Kaisahan of San Jose! It’s been 5 months since we have actual rehearsals and spot shows. Yet, I’m still amazed by how our community across the Bay Area have turned to the arts, to creativity, and to our cultural communities for support and encouragement even when we cannot be together as a person or a group. Starting this week, Kaisahan will be posting excerpts from our video archives from the early 80s to present! Here is an exclusive look back to 1984. Happy Viewing! 🥰 ~Manang Helen
