Marcha Collectivista

The “Collectivista March” was composed by Lt. Col. Walter H. Loving for President Manuel L. Quezon in 1922, the period when President Quezon split the Nacionalista Party and formed the Partido Collectivista Liberal. During the war against the Japanese, the march was adapted as a wartime song of the Hukbalahap.
