14 November 2022 – The Philippine Consulate General, in collaboration with Grandt Kitchen, Musikong Canadian Feature and Musiko Azri Productions BC, organized the “Ugnayan: Filipino Music Night” held on 10 November 2022 at the Grandt Kitchen in Surrey, British Columbia.

Consul Analyn Ratonel read the message of Consul General Maria Andrelita Austria highlighting the importance of OPM and how it provides a sense of community and a source of hope.  She also encouraged Filipinos in Canada, particularly the youth, to continue supporting Philippine Music and keeping OPM songs on top of their playlists.

The Ugnayan is the culminating activity for Pinoy Music Fridays (PMF), a Common Cultural Calendar of the Philippine Posts in Canada (PPC) led by the Philippine Embassy in Ottawa.  From October 7 to November 11, the Philippine Embassy in Canada, and the Philippine Consulates General in Vancouver, Toronto, and Calgary have been posting featured OPM songs in their official social media accounts. The PMF aims to promote OPM to the Canadian audience especially 2nd and 3rd Generation Filipino-Canadians.  END
