Celebrating Tagumpay De Leon, NEA National Heritage Fellow 2021

Join us in congratulating Tagumpay De Leon on his recognition as a 2021 National Heritage Fellow for 2021 by the National Endowment for the Arts. Mr. De Leon has taught the UCR Rondalla Ensemble in our department for over twenty years. We will share historic video footage of his first visit to UCR in 1998. After receiving congratulations from many former students, he will perform one number live at this event. Please join us for this historic occasion.

Tagumpay Mendoza De Leon is a master teacher and performer of rondalla, a traditional Spanish-influenced form of music from the Philippines. Within the Filipinx diaspora, the rondalla is profoundly meaningful as a key cultural symbol. With his easygoing style and avuncular warmth, De Leon has promoted this tradition to thousands of Filipinx Americans as fellow performers, students, and audience members. His quiet, unassuming presence has contributed integrity and deep cultural knowledge to communities in Los Angeles, Southern California, and beyond.
