Message from the Director





The UP Center for Ethnomusicology is a research institution intended to enhance knowledge and understanding of musical cultures in the Philippines, Southeast Asia, and the rest of the world. It functions as a both archive and repository of materials on music, philosophy, anthropology, and other cognate disciplines, as well as a dynamic center for performance and composition of musics of the world's cultures. It is with much pleasure therefore to invite scholars, artists, and pedagogues to join and interact with us in exploring traditions in the musical world.
