Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gungsa are flat sided lipped gongs classified as of the suspended type, though they are often played horizontally on the thighs. The are common in the Cordillera highlands of Luzon in the northern Philippines. Most gungsa are brass although some more recent ones, especially from the end of the 19th century, are cast iron. The iron ones are generally considered inferior to the "gold" ones. Gungsa are endemic throughout the Cordilleras in Luzon, the main island of the northern Philippines. They seem to have been there for centuries, and some families still treasure family heirlooms from 8 or 9 generations ago. These parts of the Philippines were not subdued by the Spanish during their four century claim over the Philippines.show more
