Sheroes On Wheels

On October 20, 1895, Annie Londonderry was the first woman who biked around the world. “I am a journalist and ‘a new woman,’” she wrote, “if that term means that I believe I can do anything that any man can do.” Today, we have more women taking on the road to cycle. These women are road SHEroes. The presence of women cycling on the road not only encourages more people to bike, it also brings different issues such as safety, fitness, and environment into everyday conversations. Women on wheels symbolize courage and empowerment. For them, changing your lifestyle means changing the world. Get to know your road #SHEro and what she fights for through cycling.

We Are Calling On You

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.
