Since we missed PG during the launching of this project last March 2010, he very kindly flew all the way from Iloilo to be with us and we just can’t get enough of him. Here he is with Frances Escape while they were jamming during the lecture forum earlier in the afternoon; with Erica Mariano, without whom we would not know how to stage this leg; with May Datuin, fellow (half) Ilongga; with his works on Dr. Primavera; and with May, Norma and Aleth.

Shaking it the Manobo way

Thanks to Carlito Camahalan Amalla, we danced for Mother Earth, the Manobo way!
