"Kulintang arts have not been taught in Stockton. Bringing this form of music to Stockton is invaluable and needed."

Master Artist Lineage
LM will develop its cultural programming by including traditional music training from our experience with Master Kalanduyan. Kalanduyan in 2016. The late master has been recognized for his expertise in kulintang by ACTA and the National Endowment for the Arts. Kalanduyan began playing the Maguindanao style of music when he was four years old as it was passed down to him by his elders. He holds a masters in ethnomusicology from the University of Washington. We continue our training with Master Kalanduyan's legacy of students from across California.
