Spent hours before my birthday with an acoustic jam with Alfa, and I must say that it was one of the memorable night I've ever had. With her alluring voice and a multi-instrumentalist, Alfa goes back to her Pinoy roots to make her "kababayans" hear what she got. And can I just say that she's really amazing, inside and out. 

Last September 3, Alfa serenaded her guests at Le Cafe Curieux in Makati. Meeting her, was a breath of fresh air, she's a pretty girl with a pretty voice. I may not know the lyrics to her songs, but I can almost see her soul into it. 

Born in the Philippines to a family of musicians, Alfa got an early start in piano and violin, playing nationally with the Children's Orchestra Society of New York. Alfa's music has received honorable mention from the New York Songwriters Circle and won Grand Prize at Kollaboration Acoustic 2009, a competition highlighting Asian-American talent.

She graduated from the New York University and worked as a reporter. But then you only live once, so she fulfilled her dream of being a musician, traveling across the U.S. to play during venues and college campuses there. And her hard work paid off! Her inspiring and happy melodies have landed her music in E!’s "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" and MTV’s "Friendzone," while Music Connection Magazine listed this Philippine-born songwriter in its Top 25 Music Critiques of 2012, noting: “Fans of Ingrid Michaelson and Sara Bareilles will savor this artist.”

We had the chance to hear her songs from her latest album, "World Go Blue". And did you know that it has climbed US radio charts including the CMJ Top 200 and the Top 100 College Radio Chart? Cool right?

World Go Blue comprises of the following songs:

1. War!
2. Blue
3. First Sight of Land
4. Missed Opportunity
5. Unwritten Rule
6. Replaced
7. Cup of Coffee
8. Bergenfield, NJ

Get a copy of World Go Blue now and hear how amazing and preppy her songs are. I am definitely loving Blue and Missed Opportunity these days that I always listen to it when I feel down. Know more about Alfa in her official website at You can also follow her on Facebook, Twitter and Youtube
