Thought I would share this video that I took yesterday at the Chinatown Seafair Parade over in the International District (July 21, 2013). This group is called “Filipino Youth Activities (FYA) Drill Team,” and they frequently perform in different locations around Seattle. The girls range from age 5 into their early 20’s, and are dressed in traditional glimmering Sari’s and jewelry. Young men bang and thump with different military-like percussion techniques, and whistles squeal over chanting young ladies. The FYA Drill team is the only Filipino-American drill team in the US.
