Andean Tarka Flute
1.5" W x 13" L
Vertical orthohedral wooden flute with six fingering holes in the central part whose origin dates back to the Aymara lordships of the highlands and is widely used in Andean festivities. The tarka sound and scale are different from any other Andean flute. Some say it sounds very primitive, soft and mellow with a rasp in the low range. The body of these instruments have some natural wear. Exquisite craftsmanship by ethnomusicologist Jose Vitancio Humeres of Peru.
