Change is one of the signs of progress, and this leads us to perfection. Changing means we are willing to embrace the betterment that life may give us all. In these modernized days, we can all see that changes take place in everything that surrounds us. Most especially in our music industry. We are now using the most updated and innovative music instruments upon creating music. However, way back in the past, since the Philippines has different ethnic races, there are different types of a traditional instruments.
Here in Mindanao, the tri-people are known to have various “old ways” of bringing music to life. Every tribe used distinct instruments but that doesn’t create a gap between them. Instead, they used it to create meaningful, fun, united, and harmonious music that’ll be remembered Adapting to change is good, but, we shouldn’t forget and turn our back on our past or culture.
