July 2017 - Music & Food 
Asian American Life kicks off the summer season with a special featuring music and the latest trends on food. Hosted by Ernabel Demillo.
Hailed as the new face of jazz, saxophonist Grace Kelly has performed with many jazz greats including Phil Woods, Wynton Marsalis and Harry Connick Jr. Dubbed as a prodigy in the jazz world, she’s one of the very few young Asian American musicians to achieve great success before the age of 25. Reporter Kyung Yoon gets up close with this rising star.

If you travel across the U.S., you’re likely to visit a hotel or motel owned by Indian Americans, also known as “Potels” — the reason behind how and why they came to dominate the hotel-motel business is more than just a simple story about an immigrant group achieving the American dream. Reporter Minnie Roh traces their history and success.

Across America there’s a growing appetite for Poke, a traditional Hawaiian dish made with raw fish. It’s popping up in major cities on the East coast. Reporter Paul Lin explores why Poke has become the trendiest dish of summer.

When it comes to blogging food trends and influencing restaurant diners, Asian Americans dominate the social media landscape. Reporter Ernabel Demillo covers some of the top food bloggers in New York.

Arias to Showstoppers - The Worlds of Opera and Theatre
Composer Michael John LaChiusa and directors Diane Paulus and Stephen Wadsworth have all worked in the once mutually-exclusive worlds of opera and theatre.
