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.
