Dear Koyang Jess and the Village Idiots (I hope I get the name of the band right),
I am totally impressed and moved by your efforts to share music as a form of social transformation. I was with you during the ACSC in April in Indonesia and since then I have been wanting to share your efforts to my colleagues here in the Philippines and in Asia. Hope to hear more from you and hope to meet you all again.
Musika tungo sa pagunawa at pagkakaisa…
Jess Santiago performs ‘Pagbabago’ which speaks about the ordinary Filipino’s yearning for change and how we as a people and as a nation should learn from the lessons of EDSA. This performance is included in a series of interviews done by Focus on the Global South between 2004-2005 collectively called the EDSA Stories.
