Historic note about charango: This instrument is modeled along the lines of a classic guitar, although smaller and featuring 10 strinngs. Traditionally the charango had an armadillo (Quirquincho) shell for its sound box, but today wood is more common.
Ask anyone to describe the music of the Andes and they will probably mention the "little guitar instrument". They are, in fact, referring to the charango.
This Andean flute is the best-known wind instrument in southern Andes and dates back to pre-Hispanic times, it is made out of a tube of cane, wood, bone or even plastic, with one end beveled into a mouthpiece.
The quena features five or six soundholes which produces a range of notes, depending on how the performer blows through the flute.
The Inca introduced this sweet-sounding flute intended to evoke a variety of emotions. The quena is an indispensable instrument in traditional bands, and songs from Andes Mountains (Bolivia and Peru).
