Paalam, Sampaguita: Love Off-shored
A riveting Tagalog song about a man left behind in the country as lady love migrates to American shores. Man sings acceptance of the harsh reality, a migratory phenomenon that saw 11% of Filipinos living abroad. This is written, composed and performed by 1990s punk band Yano
, a University of the Philippines
-grown group known to sing about social and political issues that beset the country.
