The Andean Quena is the most traditional flute of the Andean regions of South America. It has the ability to soar majestically, carrying with it the voice of an entire culture, an entire region, and of the land itself.
The Quenacho is a larger, deeper version of the Andean Quena.
The strength of the quenacho is its versatility and voice. While many quenas that are manufactured in bulk today are made from hardwood, the typical material used in the Andes is bamboo, and the large majority of professional quena players continue to use bamboo for its tone.
