May is Asian Heritage Month! To celebrate Asian Heritage Month with the Asian Heritage Foundation, visit their website to find out about events around Calgary. I performed as part of Midnight Taiko, during an interview on a local morning TV station.

From the Asian Heritage Foundation of Southern Alberta:
In December 2001, the Senate of Canada passed a motion to officially designate May as Asian Heritage Month in recognition of the important contributions of Asian Canadians to the settlement, growth and social and cultural development of Canada and in recognition of Canada’s diversity.
Calgary’s Asian Heritage Month joins cities such as Fredericton, Montréal, Toronto, Winnipeg and Vancouver in presenting a month long event to celebrate Canada’s Pan-Asian heritage.
The Asian Heritage Foundation (AHF) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting the appreciation of Asian-Canadian participation in and contribution to Canadian society. The AHF includes active involvement from over 25 Asian-Canadian community groups in southern Alberta and over 200 volunteers in the development and delivery of its programs.
