The fifth collab of the #FiliXP series brings together alternative rock band Bebe’s Wish with striking poetry by Verlin Santos.

The song “Alon” by Bebe’s Wish (HK) is deeply emotional and reflects the hope to be reunited with family. It showcases their influence from classical symphony, reminiscent of classic Filipino ballads. Accompanying this nostalgic melody are the empathic poetry by spoken word artist Verlin Santos. Verlin’s “Hanggang Sa Muli” dives deep into the lives of household service workers, describing their experience away from home and family while dreaming of a time to be reunited with loved ones.

Together, Bebe’s Wish and Verlin capture the care and sacrifice Filipinos abroad take to support their families.
