PHILIPPINES
Muranao Kakolintang - Philippine Gong Music from Lanao Vol. 2 (The Village of Taraka, Molondo and Bagoaingud) - Lyrichord LLST 7326 – Recorded by Steven W. Otto & Usopay H. Cadar (LP)





This indigenous gong-chime music, recorded in villages near Lake Lanao in the province of Lanao del Sur, is very distinct from its gamelan counterparts in Bali and Java: lighter in mood and texture, less cerebral, more groovy. Note that certain tracks on the LP are performed by children, and that, until recently, the kulingtan, a row of five to nine small gongs, was played solely by women.

Notez que certains morceaux du LP sont interprétés par des enfants et que, jusqu'à récemment, le kulingtan, une rangée de 5 à 9 petits gongs, était joué uniquement par des femmes.
