This website, just like my collection, is a work in progress. Browsing through the web has made me realize the dearth of available information on Philippine indigenous music. Having traveled much of Southeast Asia, I have also come to the conclusion that compared to neighboring countries, the Philippines has little permanent venues that showcase its colorful music traditions.
Much of the instruments and recordings is from my own personal collection of musical instruments and recordings including those of vocal music that I have gathered since 1990. Some were collected from various field work projects while others were purchased from instrument makers, antique shops, crafts workshops, trade fairs, and other venues.
This site is my own little way of sharing my passion and love for traditional music in general and Philippine music in particular.
