Hari Ragat: Mount Kumintang

Mount Kumintang is a volcano in the south-central region of Balayan Island, and is the home of a male diwata which the people keep asleep through a curious custom.

To keep the diwata from being angered and thus causing an eruption, there is always a maiden who serves as the Flautist of Mount Kumintang. She must be a virgin, and she must of course be good with the flute, for she must spend her days lulling the diwata to sleep with music.
