HK Wong Kar Wai Confirms Filipino Influence on his youth
« on: October 27, 2020, 03:59:14 AM »
Very few Asians know about Filipino pop influence in the 1950s and 1960s on other Asian countries during this era.  They just accepted that "Latin" music suddenly appeared on their shores.  No, this was a purposefully Filipino influence as a center for education during this period of prosperity in the Philippines.  In his interview about the film In The Mood for Love, Wong said he grew up listening to Latin music as a cultural export from the Philippines.  I know a lot of older Vietnamese who listen to Latin music during the 1960s, which they said came from the Philippines.

The soft tempo of VNCH era music has a very soft Latin beat.  I mean you can definitely feel this influence.  The French are not known for this music and Americans are already into heavy rock and roll by the early 1950s.
