In summer 2016, I traveled throughout Luzon and Visayas with the Kapit Bisig Kabataan Network (KBKN) to learn about the social and economic conditions of the Philippines by integrating with farmer, fisherfolk, and indigenous communities. Their livelihood is largely affected by mass land grabbing and militarization of communities, which are issues rooted in U.S's presence in Philippines, a semi-feudal social system, and bureaucratic capitalism.

Each song is a sonic diary of Luzon and Visayas.
