Appalachian-Philippine fusion: the kubing

Watch on Youtube

I’ve been kind of shy about posting any home-made music to the blog lately, but Rachel forced my hand. The bamboo jaw harp known as the kubing may be from the Philippines, but it goes great with Appalachian music. Here are a couple of examples, inexpertly rendered under the influence of a couple bottles of homebrew. These were recorded live over the internet, so the video doesn’t quite keep up with the audio due to my slow connection.

    1. A blissful romance between a Tuvan throat singer and a didgeridoo, I think. In a foot-stomping Appalachian sort of way. Difficult to imagine its not being unique :-) Like the home brew. Just fabulous.
