If you’re trying to learn about kulintang, you’ve probably been hard pressed to find information in your local library. Perhaps you’ve lucked out and managed to find youtube clips of kulintang competitions in the Middle East, Philippines or U.S – out of 7,000 youtube videos only roughly 1,000 are high definition. Its music you’re after but it’s not easy to find; I’ve tried. And then suddenly you hit upon what seems like a goldmine.

Susie Ibarra is a composer, percussionist, improviser, TED fellow, NYFA fellow, humanitarian. She trained in kulintang under Master Danny Kalanduyan and can be heard on over 40 CDs/records. Her own projects include Electric Kulintang, Digital Sanctuaries, and Song of the Bird King. She’s been featured in the New York Times.

All About Jazz says “With expansive soundscapes, funky/jazz rhythms and exquisite melodies, Ibarra has created a Kulintang for the new millennium.”

Please have a listen to Duyog by Kalanduyan Family, The Cotabato Sessions.

Have a taste of Electric Kulintang’s Cotabato City. Its sweet!
