In the Southeast Asian archipelago island known as the Philippines, a buktot instrument is defined as a visayan stringed instrument. Each buktot has four strings, and each one creates a sweet and traditional sound which really captures the essence of the island and its people. The buktot is one of many classic Filipino instruments, including the lantoy. If you're curious about traditional musical instruments, you may be fascinated by the way they tend to vary from nation to nation and continent to continent.

  • Other traditional instruments

Far from the Philippines, in the Emerald Isle, Irish people still play on the fiddles that were passed down from their ancestors. An Irish fiddle is actually exactly the same as a traditional Italian violin; however, it is used to play lilting ballads, lively jigs, and other Celtic ditties. In Italy, a violin is used in a more expressive, romantic way.

  • Instruments reflect their country of origin

It's kind of funny how traditional instruments are used to reflect the special traits of their country men and women. After all, Italy is known for passion and romance, and Ireland is known for its party spirit, which is proudly displayed each March 17th, on Saint Patrick's Day. In the Philippines, instruments have a lovely, almost tropical sound that reflects the exotic beauty and relaxed pace of the archipelago islands.

To learn more about traditional Filipino instruments or the traditional instruments of other cultures, you should pick up some CD's or download some songs that use these instruments. Google "traditional Filipino music" or "traditional Celtic folk songs" to find examples of music that might use a Buktot instrument of a Celtic fiddle or Bodhran drum. The culture and history of countries are reflected in their music as well as their traditional instruments, so it's very enlightening to learn more about these songs and how they are played.
