Musician mixes sounds of ancient instrument with electronic music

An artist from San Francisco, California mixes the sound of the kulintang, a traditional instrument indigenous to the southern Philippines, which in a sense is like a marimba, with modern electronic music. After four years of work,  Ron Quesada is about to launch his first album with his novel musical proposal. Quesada hopes to have an impact on young Filipino-Americans, to help them learn more about their cultural roots. Our correspondent in Los Angeles, Rubén Tapia, interviewed the creator of Kulintronica during an event to help victims of the most recent hurricane that hit the Philippines. This story is part of the series Raíces: Stories about Grassroots Artists.
