Mindanao Lilang-Lilang’s Kulintang Instrument Acquisition Project

Please contact Manny Dragon (dragonply@gmail.com) if you have any interest or questions about these items for sale.  Prices are for local pick-up only, and additional costs of shipping will be determined on a case-by-case basis.

Proceeds from kulintang instrument sales benefit the programs of Mindanao Lilang-Lilang (a California non-profit corporation), specifically those programs which directly support the efforts of the Kalanduyan family members in making these Maguindanaon-made kulintang instruments available to musicians in the United States and Canada.
