This chapter surveys the migrations of Manila musicians in different Asian cities in the final quarter of the nineteenth century and the early-twentieth century. The chapter pieces together biographies, articles from historical newspapers, and surviving archival documents to survey the movement of acoustic modernities through the migration of sounds and ideas instigated by the migrant Manila musicians in the Asia Pacific region.
