Dakila – Philippine Collective for Modern Heroism, in partner with Oxfam, asked me to write a song on food security and sustainable agriculture, as part of their campaign on climate and food justice. Last night, we officially concluded the recording at Womb Worx Studio. I can’t help but be grateful and be overwhelmed by the fact that my song had been performed by some of the most talented musicians in the country, Kakoy Legaspi on guitars, Arwin Nava on conga, Arnold “Budeths” Casinto on dumbek, Rely de Vera on drums, Malou Matute on kulintang and other indigenous instruments, and Francis De Veyra on bass. In addition, I sang along side these fierce and amazing female singers: Kat Agarrado, Tao Aves, Aia de Leon, and Bayang Barrios. Thank you for all your generosity. Ang mabuhay ng dahil Sa’yo!
