SLANTY EYED MAMA

  1. Trailer for a comedy and music concert with comedy by Kate Rigg and music by the Amerasian super duo Slanty Eyed Mama. The show looks at images of Asians in the Western world through the lens of spoken word, stand up, rock n roll, video installation and comedic sketch comedy characters. A dissert-asian on Orientalism in the modern age.

  2. Recorded in Toronto in 2013 Slanty Eyed Mama performs one of their best loved hip hop old school new twist songs about nail ladys, take out boxes, olympic ping pong and laundry owners. A riff on stereotype with a decidedly funny rock n roll twist. We stomped this out at the Asian Heritage Month ceremony in New York City, The Smithsonian Institute, The MIchigan Womyn's Music Festival, The Perth International Festival, The Comedy Central Theater and LA Grand Performances. It rocks.

  3. A music video about the split between East and West in cultural identity, the legacy of immigrant culture into a fantasy of what the "West" really represents and the way American Asians relate their story to the voices from abroad calling them back, asking how the American Dream separates different factions of the same cultural and ancestral families. Performed by ground breaking Amerasian trip hop/rock n roll duo Slanty Eyed Mama and using raw footage shot in Indonesia combined with an abandoned Old West town shot on location in the desert.

  4. From a special on Racial Bias in America, Kate's first appearance on Dr. Phil was a panel with other comedians including Paul Mooney and a lively discussion about dog eating and all asians looking the same.

  5. Live performance video of "Me Love You Long Time" Starts out kinda mellow spoken word, street infused rhyme style and turns kind of rock n roll in the last half. Surprising, stereotype busting balls to the walls song from a serious, comical, satirical, poetic girl band from New York. We were once thanked by a filipino american female military vet who said this song expressed her rage, after serving her country so long, at being treated like a second class citizen, and the assumptions men made about her based on race.
