“Josh Santana Speaks About His Album And Its Fil-Hispano Concept”
Josh admits that he speaks only conversational spanish. He learned this from his grandparents and other relatives but never got the chance to nurture it beyond the walls of their home while growing up. With this little knowledge about Spanish culture and language, he hopes to help propagate the use of Espanol and to awaken the Hispanismo in every modern Filipino. He believes that, “one does not need to be fluent in Spanish to be considered a vanguard of Fil-Hispano culture.” Besides, that’s why it’s not solely “Hispano,” but “Fil-Hispano.” Thus, the Filipino element is still firmly embraced by the term.
Josh hopes to share Fil-Hispano culture and music to young Filipinos and to the world through his music in the album “Josh Santana: Eres Tú” released in 2009 by PolyEast Records, Filipinas.
