Instrumentarium

Image019The Instrumentarium has a collection of musical instruments including Philippine gongs & bamboos,  and instruments of a wide variety of different makes from other Asian countries (Thailand, India, China, Japan, Korea, Indonesia, etc.) as well as parts of Latin America and Africa.

The instruments were collected though Dr. Jose Maceda’s “An Ethnomusicological Survey of the Philippines”, while some were donated as gifts during his travels. Recently acquired instruments were donated to the UPCE through workshops, new field work, and conferences and fora such as the Laón-Laón.
