The Dictionary of Filipino Musical Terms is a project of the UP Center for Ethnomusicology, which addresses the need for a comprehensive reference to words, terms and meanings on Filipino music, musical concepts, and other aspects related to music production, materials, performance, theory, education, as well as activities where sound expression is manifest and is part of. It contains terms derived from the principal Filipino languages, and those borrowed, adopted, and transformed from other languages which have come to be employed in the context of music and music making, as well as colloquial terms that are now in use by musicians in contemporary musical productions and performances.
