Kaba Modern is a street dance group established in 1992 by a group of "kababayans", headed by Arnel Calvario, at the University of California, Irvine. Originally put together to perform as "The Modern Suite" at their Filipino Culture Night (PCN), the group has evolved from being a PCN suite to becoming one of the most well known hip hop groups in California.
