Refaluwasch and Chamorro Children's Songs of Saipan; Music of Resilience, Identity and Adaptation
This presentation by Melanie Hangca will be followed by a 45-minute discussion of local music and cultural identity featuring a panel of celebrated local musicians: JJ Concepcion, Gus Kaipat, and Microchild's Shannon McManus.

Melanie Hangca has been teaching choral, instrumental and general music for almost two decades, and has worked in public schools on both the East Coast and West Coast of the US. She will share her childhood cultural and musical experiences on Saipan as a “Chamolinerican,” her adolescent influences that shaped her cultural identity, and the inspiration that led her to return to Saipan to collect authentic indigenous children’s music of the CNMI.
