The Collaborator Project

Here we are today, announcing the launch of a new series, called Collaborator Project!

The Collaborator Project: Fantastic Negrito

Introducing episode 2 of The Collaborator Project featuring Fantastic Negrito. This episode is meant to exude the simple message that WE are all in this together. It’s about a man who struggled to “make it”, who “got it”, and then who lost it all, yet somehow managed to find his way back amidst these tumultuous times. The vast spectrum of his song crafting addresses both local and global affairs, while his community actions speak to the heart of the matter - we are all interdependent of one another.
