When critics are being silenced and those who resist oppression and exploitation are being murdered, musicians must unite music-making with the struggle against injustice. This is our response to the ever worsening human rights situation in the country.
Makibaka is our invitation to fellow musicians to continue creating music that will resonate and create ripples of change. The song, the digital release, and the solidarity launch, is a collective statement: we are musicians coming together for human rights, socially relevant music, upholding Filipino arts and culture.
Lastly, we also dedicate this to three very important individuals who have passed on 2019. Their lives are songs on our lips and we will never stop singing until these resonate throughout the world! Tony, Fred, Joy, thank you for guiding us and may you continue guiding us in the years to come. Taas kamao!
