Why Han Han w/ HATAW Rules by April Aliermo (2017)
I first saw Han Han rapping with my friends DATU at a show and I was like “WTF?! Who the hell is that?!” This emcee came out of nowhere. I was really excited and wanted to see more. With dance troupe HATAW backing her up, she recently started playing her own full, very ill sets. Han Han always delivers. Never mind that she raps in Tagalog and Cebuano. Never mind that she’s got a real groove when she moves on stage. Never mind that she’s a full-time nurse helping save lives in the operating room. Han Han has got a very particular “fuck-ya” presence when she’s on stage. She makes talking about social issues the most fun, badass thing ever. Her flow and voice are unique and captivating. You don’t need to understand her Native Philippine languages to be swept into her world. You will always have an amazing time at a Han Han show, like saving your life in a different way.
