Documenting, making and playing of traditional bamboo instruments is only one of the ways to transfer the rich musical tradition of the Igorots to the next generations. Currently, there is no single material printed that is devoted to the Indigenous bamboo instruments of the Igorots. This is because, traditions are mostly orally transmitted in IP communities.
Moreover, there are only very few Elders and bamboo musical artisans alive in the Cordillera region, thus the need to train the youth who are willing to teach other young people in their communities on the making and performance on their respective instruments. This is the only way we to keep alive the musical traditions, especially those which are in danger of extinction simply because of lack of awareness of their importance in strengthening their cultural identity.
There have been many instances in which musical instruments long neglected become popular again once they are resurfaced through demonstrations and performances.
Hapiyoh Mi Culture and Arts Center has won multiple awards and recognitions for their work.
