a mother-of-pearl inlaid chest and a "kutyapi", a tribal musical instrument
The Maguindanao kutyapi is one of the most technically demanding and difficult to master among Filipino trational instruments. Of its two strings, one provides the rythmic drone, while the other has movable frets that allow melodies to be played in two sets of pentatonic scales, one containing semi-tones, the other containing none.

a "kulintang" beside me; on the wall is a welded wrought iron decor by designer Ann Pamintuan
The Kulintang is a set of eight knobbed gongs in graduated sizes, layed-out horizontally on a wooden frame. Made from either brass, wood, bamboo, or metal plates, it is played with a pair of wooden sticks.
These were taken at the Waterfront Insular Hotel.
