A singer-songwriter, an artist, a creative collaborator, a yogini, and a planeteer.
When she’s not performing or creating art, she likes to take long walks to campaign for climate justice, one of which was a 1,000-km journey from Lyon to Paris, France that changed her life forever.
“Art is the highest form of nourishment.”

Nityalila’s first love is music. Her music is a celebration of the present, bringing her audience to the here and now. She revels in the world’s connectedness and strongly believes in the universal power of music to communicate peace and love.
In 2015, Nityalila was the recipient of MUKHA (in the field of music) awarded by Global City Innovative College (GCIC) to celebrate Philippine Culture where they select personalities who embody the passion to preserve local Filipino identity and nationalism in the fields of fashion, music, and the arts.
Tayo Tayo was written and composed for Climate Walk in 2014, a 1,000 km journey on foot from Manila to Tacloban. The walk aimed to raise awareness and educate people on Climate Change and to commemorate the 1st anniversary of super typhoon Haiyan. A year later, Nityalila, together with Yeb Saño (former Chief Climate Negotiator of the Philippines), along with other climate advocates from all over the world embarked on a Pilgrimage from Rome to Paris (1,500 kms) to elevate the voices of the Filipino people and vulnerable communities. The Pilgrimage brought the message of interfaith groups to the UN Climate Summit in Paris, France. Tayo Tayo is a call to action for #ClimateRevolution. Tayo, tayo (Together, we stand!).
