Details

The quena is a woodwind instrument consisting of a hollow tube with holes cut for notes. It is played by placing the mouthpiece notch under the bottom lip & blowing. Originally constructed of animal bone or bamboo shoots, some quenas today are made of wood. The smallest is called a quenilla and the largest is called a quenacho. The sweet melody of the quena flute evokes images of tranquil Andean highlands. Quena means many-holed object in the Quechua language and it is said to have entranced birds to soar above the person playing it. This may be no wonder, given that early versions the quena were crafted from condor bone. Although its origin is unclear, the quenahas been found in nearly all countries of Latin America.
