The PALABUNIYAN KULINTANG ENSEMBLE, under the artistic direction of Master Danongan “Danny” Kalanduyan between 1988 and 2016, presents traditional music and dance of the Southern Philippines.   The ensemble specializes in the traditional kulintang (bronze gong) ensemble music of the Maguindanaon culture of Mindanao Island.

In 2017, the performing group’s name was changed from Palabuniyan Kulintang Ensemble to San Francisco Kulintang Project.  Members of the San Francisco Kulintang Project continue to perform and to teach traditional kulintang music and culture, and are continuing the legacy of their teacher, director, and friend Danongan “Danny” Kalanduyan.
