    Gongs and Bamboo: A Panorama of Philippine Musical Instruments

    Jose Maceda

    Winner, National Book Award, Music, 1998
    This panorama of music instruments starts with older bamboo and other instruments of undetermined age, going on to two types of gongs?flat in Northern Luzon and bossed in the South. These two areas may be viewed as pocket cultures comparable to other pockets in Borneo, Sumatra, other islands in Southeast Asia, and the mountain regions south of, and including, Yunnan province of China, thus placing the music of Luzon and Mindanao in a larger geographical context.
