about

Philippine-born folk/pop songwriter ALFA has unveiled her first song in the Visayan language, “Alindahaw." Wrapped in a dreamy bossa nova conga rhythm and warm hollow-body guitar stylings, “Alindahaw” takes you to a peaceful place of natural beauty - the perfect escape in our uncertain times.
“We all need a getaway when life gets to us and things seem
insurmountable,” Alfa says. “That’s when I think about Mindanao, where I was born, and its coconut trees, clean streams, and little dragonflies that fly amid the beauty.”
