The kulintang, or gongs in a row, is basically a melody instrument played by a single performer as a solo instrument or as part of an ensemble. It consists of eight gongs placed horizontally in a frame and tuned to a flexible pentatonic or five-tone scale. Among the Islamic peoples of the South of the kulintang ensemble, where it is the primary melody instrument supported by the dabakan (A conical drum), agung, gandingan (four suspended narrow-rimmed gongs), babandil (small gong, sometimes the last gong of the kulintang) – all of which act as drones constantly repeating a particular rhythmic pattern for the duration of the music. The kulintang player acts as the central player and makes various improvisations on the chosen mode moving in progressively ascending and descending steps of sounds. Usually, three types of rhythmic modes are utilized, namely, the duyug, sinulug and tidtu. The dabakan starts with the music, announcing the mode, while the other instruments follow.

The kulintang ensemble is often considered as the most cultivated of the region’s musical expressions. Aside from being a medium of entertainment and hospitality, the kulintang also serves as a vehicle for social interaction and group solidarity and for learning ethical principles.

Other idiophones of the South include the gabbang or bamboo xylophone of the Tausog of Sulu, and the edel or log drum, a plank idiophone made of molave wood suspended and beaten with sticks and used by the Tabakaolo, Bilaan and Manobo
