music and art have both influenced by the cultures that have migrated to this country. The first type of music that developed in the Philippines was indigenous music brought here by the native tribes who migrated from Taiwan. There are three basic groups of indigenous musical styles: Southern styles, styles of the North and other styles. South of the music style usually involves five different instruments including the kulintang, the agung, the gangdinagan, the dabakan, and the babedil. The northern indigenous music styles reflect Asian music gong. His music generally includes TomTom unbossed called the Gangsa. In addition to the instruments used by the musical styles of North and South, other instruments used in the Philippines include log drums, flutes, bamboo zither and the Kudyapi.
the Hispanic cultures of Spain and Mexico have influenced the development of Filipino music. These cultures have introduced forms of music such as the Harana the Kundiman and Rondalla. Most of these forms of music developed as a result of the merger between tribal music and traditional music styles, Spanish and Mexican. Today the influence of Spain and Mexico is still present in modern Filipino music. Modern music popular in the Philippines still has a Hispanic flavor.
Philippine art has its roots in the colonial and indigenous traditions of imports. Like the majority of cultures, the Philippines has its own style of arts such as sculpture and painting. However, they also have their own style of movement as dance arts. Some of the most notable artists of the Philippines are Fernando Amorsolo, David Cortes Medal, Nunelucio Alvardao, Juan Luna, Felix Hidalgo and Rey Paz Contreras.
