A few years back, I was exposed to a small community near Inayawan Sanitary Landfill. There I find joy, grief, anger, and hope in a godforsaken place. What I've seen, experienced, felt and smelt is summarized in this 4-minute song. It's been 20 years since the opening of the landfill. It was designed to operate for 7 years only.

What have we done to this place?


Ang akong payag naa sa tunga sa basakan
Ang akong mata wala siyay kasangitan
Nakit-an tika naligo sa baybayon
Walay sukod ang imong pagkagwapahon

Ikay sama sa usa ka pultahan
Daghang lalake gusto ka nga ablihan
Nakit-an tika imo sila gipahawa
Kay wala sa ila ang imo nga gipangita

Ikay sama sa usa ka timbangan
Gisukod ka nila ila kang pangwartahan
Nakit-an tika naghilak sa bitoon
Walay sukod ang imong pagmagul-anon

Sa kadugayan gihimo ka'g basurahan
Sa mga lalake nga imo na gibuwagan
Nakit-an tika naglisod nag ginhawa
Napuno naka sa ilang bakak na istorya

Who are you?
I am a struggling musician.

What is a struggling musician?
In simple terms, it's the opposite of big-name artists. Usually, a struggling musician has a day job that he hates and when night falls, he grabs his guitar and hops around the city bars to play a tune or two in exchange for a free dinner. It's close to frustration.

How can I follow you?
