Bahay Kubo by Hermès AlègrèBahay Kubo is perhaps the best-known and best-loved folk song in the Philipines. Its composer is unknown. Its Tagalog lyrics have been passed down through the generations by way of the oral tradition. The words and music which appear in this book represent but one of the many versions of this folk song.
The songs diatonic melody and walts-like rhythm suggest European influences. The lyrics include plants which are not indegenous to the Philippines, such as peanuts (mani), eggplant (talong), and mustard (mustasa).

I believe this to be reflective of how the Filipino, with what little resources we may have as a developing nation, can stay afloat while making the most of whatever is available to us. Design-wise I thought it would be a visual treat to show a colorful, bountiful veggie feast surrounding the humble quarters that a typical rural Filipino family calls home. I also thought that application of the artwork on everyday stationery such as postcards and notebooks would allow the consumer to celebrate Filpino culture any and every time.
