Kulintang is a Maguindanao word for eight gong kettles which are laid horizontally upon a rack.  This idiophone functions as the lead and central melodic instrument of the entire ensemble.  The other instruments in the ensemble are:  dabakan (drum), agong, babandil, and sometimes gandingan and bamboos.
