Maguindanao province is home to a fascinating culture that revolves around kulintang music, a specific type of gong music, found among both Muslim and non-Muslim groups of the Southern Philippines. Kulintang music functions as main community unifier, where all of the community can come to engage in events such as weddings, birthday celebrations and festivals to dignitary engagements and pilgrimages to and from Mecca. At home, such music unifies and solidifies family ties as family members take to playing after dinner. Kulintang music also plays a vital role as the accompaniment to healing dances, as long-distance communication between members (They have the ability to use the gandingan, also known as the ‘talking gongs,’ to communicate from far away long before the invention of the telephone), and as a social conduit for young people (Interactions between opposite sexes were not allowed except though such instruments).
