Kulintang Instrument Acquisition Project
Please contact Manny Dragon (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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.
