Tipanan (Rendezvous) is a convergence of different musical styles from the Philippine islands. From the sublime to the rhythmically charged, harana (serenade) to tribal dance, this collection showcases the diversity of Philippine music along with its most trusted instrument.
The influence of Spain, the assimilation of American pop, the staying power of the rural folk songs, and the exoticism of indigenous rhythms, yield a picturesque canvas of a culture like no other.

Very honored to receive the 2016 Music Composition Awards from the Gerbode Foundation. Big thanks to Alleluia Panis DanceTheater and Kularts for the support and collaboration over the years - from Lalawigan (2009), Aswang (2013), Maseg (2014), She Who Can See (2015), Bae Makiling (2016), and now Utom (2018/2019).
Looking forward to writing Utom, a contemporary composition based on the music of the T-boli people and inspired by the mythical story of the deity Boi Henwu.
From Lalawigan, a call to resist and fight for freedom. Appropriate for these times. -Team FA Performed at the Asian Art Museum SF in 2011 Featuring Giovanni Jose (vocals), Sage Baggott (percussion), Ron Quesada (octavina), Jessica Ivry (cello)
