Abstract

My current research is about live music entertainment in themed leisure venues in Asia, and the overseas Filipino musicians who predominate the transnational labor force for this performance sector. Although playing live music professionally is typically classified as part of creative/cultural industries, the economic contexts of tourism, leisure, and hospitality configure this labor as service employment—that is, a form of interactive entertainment adding ambience and liveliness to places like theme parks, hotels, and cruise ships. My thesis explores how and why Filipino musicians are racially constructed and branded as “perfect” for this line of migrant creative work.
