If pre-colonial culture is to be made the basis in defining what Kapampangan culture is, then Kapampangan cinema is an idea to be assassinated, as film is a technology and art originated by the Europeans.Literature written in the Roman alphabet should be brought down, as our ancestors used to write using Kulitan.But defining what art is answers only 50% of the question raised: what is Kapampangan art?The other 50% is left to the inquiry: For me, the artwork of whoever identifies himself a Kapampangan during the time he was conceiving his work falls under Kapampangan art.Americans and Europeans today use 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 in counting.Do they still think of those numbers as Hindu-Arabic? Instead, since the Hindu-Arabic numbers have proven to be most convenient in the daily lives of Westerners, they adopted the “foreign” counting system and from there developed things on their own, such as the binary system in computers (use of 1 and 0), etc.It is who makes the most out of an idea who shall be known by the people.ABS-CBN originated the idea of having batches of actors they called Star Circle.
Culture is a set of meanings and symbols shared by a community.It can either manifest materially (tools, shelter, clothes, food, etc.) or immaterially (values, ethics, norms, laws, religious belief, language).The next thing to understand is that culture is alive. It changes based on the present needs (and wants) of the community members and continually blends with external influence, especially now that ideas can be shared in seconds through communication technology, unlike in the ancient times when direct human contact and communication were needed for information exchange, which resulted in slow and unnoticeable cultural change. Different cultures influence one another, and it is through these “cultural marriages” that ideas are either born in new forms, mixed forms, or merely reproduced as they are (especially if the powerful culture is wed with a weak, minor culture, the latter’s “cultural genes” may not surface at all in their “child”), similar with how humans perpetuate their species through sexual reproduction.Defining what Kapampangan culture is is a tricky act.To base it on pre-colonial culture is an unwise move, as even our pre-colonial culture could have been a mixture of what our ancestors thought of then as indigenous culture; foreign culture that found way to the lives of our ancestors through trade, intermarriages, and migration; and ideas born out of sheer creativity.
Even the Japanese make rock songs and they have absorbed it well; hence the birth of the globally acknowledged J-Rock.
