The karaoke machine affords the American public endless drunken nights wailing off-key lyrics to already overplayed classics. This heavily practiced bar tradition is all thanks to Filipino inventor Robert del Rosario (thanks a lot, dude). Filipinos carry a vast accumulation of inventions tied to their names; however, they’re often overlooked, even by Filipinos themselves. ‘Singgalot: The Ties That Bind,’ a traveling exhibition, brings Filipino history to life through rare photographs and illustrations. The opening reception commences on Saturday, Nov. 19, at the Sonoma County Museum. 425 Seventh St., Santa Rosa. 5–7pm. $10. 707.579.1500.
