Gary Granada is a Filipino folk artist that is known to be intellectually creative with his songwriting. His songs are his way of expressing his political views and opinions on social issues. He is a sensible activist, one that does not oppose to just anything.
I was introduced to his music along with other folk artists like Noel Cabangon, Joey Ayala, Bayang Barrios, Buklod, etc when I was active in mountaineering when I was in college in late 90’s. Their music speaks for our advocacy for the environment and patriotism. “Iisa” is one of my favorite Gary Granada’s songs that can be interpreted as a lovesong for a loved one or your love song for our beloved country :)
I once wished this should be played as I walk down that “aisle” :P
