Sulibao and Sulibaw 

Sulibao and Sulibaw are both conical drums common in Cordillera specifically among the Ibaloi of Benguet.

Strikingly, some are long and narrow shaped drums like the sulibao.

Sulibao is a longitudinal lightly barrel shaped hallowed out logs with deer skin on one end.

The sulibao accompanies the Ibaloi flat gong ensemble with another conical drum called sulibaw.


Sulibaw is a shorter version of the Sulibao.
