Barikada

Barikada is a song composed in 2011 and my first collaboration with Tudla Productions. It was also the official sound track of the short film they made of the same title. Happy listening!

Below was my post about the song Barikada from way back in 2011:

Barikada is a song for all those who struggle and continues to struggle for their homes. A song for the people of Silverio Compound in Paranaque, Brgy. Corazon De Jesus in San Juan, homes in north triangle Quezon City, and all communities facing demolition just to give way to the interest of a few. Para sa lahat ng lumalaban para sa kanilang mga karapatan, kabuhayan, at tahanan: sulong!

Maraming salamat kay Chantal Eco, Lady Ann Salem, Sam Montuya, Godson Escopete, Jamela Valdez, Jerome Permejo, Raymund Villanueva at sa cast, crew at buong Tudla Productions, at syempre sa mamamayan ng Brgy. Corazon de Jesus, San Juan City.

Barikada (Barricade) is a short film produced by Tudla Productions.

Synopsis: Cora, wife of Joel and mother to Michelle, has devoted her time in the organized resistance of her community against the demolition of their homes to give way to infrastructure projects of the government. Many like-minded neighbours plan to put up a barricade come demolition day. Three days before the demolition, the community comes face to face with the mounting pressures of their struggle: neighbours succumbing to despair, government unheeding of their demands. The community went on the fight realizing they have more to lose without it.
