This year Sitti with guitarist Erskine Basilio and percussionist Diego Martinez recorded and released their new album Singles Bossa Nova Trio. Recorded al-fresco at a house in Rizal where Sitti mentioned that there were more trees than people, the new album have birds singing with them that made it magical.
