For indigenous peoples, sound is an important vehicle to convey messages. karyag (a Tao musical get-together for rhythmic clapping and singing) is one such example, an event that was originally held to encourage single youths to meet. Participants sat around a working area, rhythmically clapping and singing a back-and-forth conversation to show off their vocal and lyrical skills. When the government constructed a large number of concrete buildings in the 1980s, these performance areas disappeared and karyag gradually fell into decline.
