Alfa releases Visayan/English single ‘Alindahaw’

Philippine-born folk/pop songwriter ALFA has unveiled her first song in the Visayan language, “Alindahaw” via Warner Music Philippines. 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 said. “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.”

A versatile and organic songwriter who has created upbeat tunes like “Blue” and “Bean Song (My Solace),” Alfa is also able to tap into life’s darker depths. Her December 2019 single “Box of Letters” is an honest song about abandonment by her father, while 2018’s “Fool’s Gold” encourages those who struggle with self-esteem.

In May 2020, Alfa will be featured in the American nationwide PBS show, “Songs at the Center,” where host Eric Gnezda describes her as “the rare artist that reaches you on various levels, as she has an uncanny knack for having fun, but also touching you deeply.”

Stay tuned for an early-April release of Alfa’s “ Alindahaw ” music video, created by the team at Rawmix Productions. Meanwhile, she can be found regularly playing livestreams while social distancing via her Facebook page.
