Food nourishes the body and music feeds the soul. For this Mother's Day, DJ Neil Armstrong and I will be collaborating on Mother's Day Brunch & A Mixtape: A Modern Filipino Brunch. For this brunch, I wanted to prepare a special and sentimental meal, inspired by my favorite dishes that my mother prepared for me while I was growing up. The dishes are as authentic to my mother's creations/recipes as possible, while also reflecting my own personal growth in the kitchen. Attendees will come home with a copy of DJ Neil Armstrong’s latest mixtape on cassette USB, giving the participants the opportunity to bring part of the experience home with them. DJ Neil Armstrong Bio: Born & bred in NYC, DJ Neil Armstrong turned his love of music and hip-hop cultureinto a career that has allowed him to play music for the masses all over the world. Eventually Neil’s reputation as a turntable musician landed him a spot as Jay-Z’s tour DJ. From 2008-2010 he backed up Mr. Carter on 4 tours around North America, Europe and Africa. Neil held down the turntables for the televised 9/11 tribute at Madison Square Garden, and performed in front of 120,000 plus at the Glastonbury Festival in England. By far the highlight was performing for the inauguration of the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama. This was the 1st time in history turntables and scratching were present for a celebration of this magnitude.DJ Neil Armstrong is truly an international DJ, one of the few who can say he has performed on 6 continents around the world. As a global music ambassador for Adidas he continues on, bringing happiness to the people through music.
