Ito Ako, meaning "it me" is a tape of Filipino music by Angela Dimayugaoriginally commissioned by Bunny Jr. Tapes.

Side A is a compilation of Kundiman, or Filipino love songs. Angela's great-grandfather, the composer, Francisco Santiago (known as The Father of Kundiman Art Song) popularized the genre in the early 1900s, and Track 2 is an original composition by him.

Side B is 90s Bay Area Filipinx alternative, contemporary dream pop, freestyle and RnB; it's music Angela grew up listening to and songs that shaped her teen years.

The cassette sold out when first released! This exclusive second pressing acts as a musical accompaniment to Angela's new book, which shares personal storytelling of the diaspora and Angela's own Filipinx-American experience.

'I never liked any knife roll I owned, so I wanted to make my own. Having something beautiful like this forces you to keep your tools extremely clean, and carefully choose where each is stored.'

'You can wear it over your shoulder and cross-body. I love the ceremonial feeling of wrapping the long tie around the tool roll to enclose,' she says.

Not just a knife roll for a chef on the go, it's equally functional for musicians, ceramicists—or hobbyists of any description—to safely store and carry their essential tools.
