Ibong Malaya’s “Unang Alay”

A popular protest song during the Marcos dictatorship. It was usually sung during a “Misang Bayan” or People’s Mass or when a kasama passed away. I first heard this song in 1984 in honor of those who fell along the way to national liberation. This song remains relevant today as darkness reigns in our land while the masses once again […]

Jess Santiago’s “Martsa ng Bayan”

A very appropriate song for yesterday’s huge mass mobilization of pro-people organizations. This song was a very popular anthem during the dark days of the Marcos dictatorship and it’s still today among the veterans of the anti-Marcos dictatorship struggle.

Jess Santiago’s “18”

This is a song about growing up. Felt like crying whenever I hear this song from the poet Jess Santiago. The song always reminds me of my daughter when she was still a baby and growing up. She is a young woman now in her 20’s.                     Music Video © YouTUBE
