In late 2003, Gutierrez released, after two years in the making, an album of her versions of lullabies from around the Philippine archepelago, in around half a dozen languages and dialects, including Kalinga, Waray, Cebuano, Tagalog and others. The album, "UYAYI: A Collection of Philippine Lullabies", was the result of field research capturing sound recordings of elders around the country singing their traditional songs for the youth, then a process of laborious re-recording of the songs, accompanied by Pinoy musicians such as Bo Razon, Joey Ayala, Tots Tolentino, Malou Matute and Rachel Conanan. The double CD includes one CD of her music, and one of the field recordings, plus a short video of the making. It has won several awards, received a National Commission for Culture and the Arts grant, and was the focus of a few music showcases.
