The Bagobo are an indigenous Proto-Austronesian tribe of Mindanao in southern Philippines. Here is a traditional Bagobo Agung ensemble taken by anthropologist Robert Garfias during the 1960s. The Agung tradition of the Philippines & Borneo is closely related to the Kulintang tradition (which stretches south and west from Mindanao to Sumatra in Indonesia), and distantly related to Javanese and Balinese Gamelan musical genres.
