"Pok Pok Alimpako" is a Maranao game song in which children build an imaginary staircase to the moon and stars by stacking their fists. Taking her inspiration from the delicately intricate okir motifs in Maranao traditional art, award-winning illustrator Liza Flores uses lovely paper cutouts to render life to a song that also celebrates the flight of the iconic sarimanok.
