Details

Resplendent in nature's glory, these maracas set the beat to melodies from south of the equator. Dionisio Quilla crafts the lively instruments from tutuma gourds, which he dries under the sun once emptied of their seeds. When ready, he uses a burin to mark and paint a verdant jungle composition. The maracas are filled with small beads, and sealed with tornillo wood handles.

Please expect a slight variation in the shape and since of the maracas, which depend on the gourds' natural shape.

"Just what I wanted"

I ve been haunted by the sounds of the pan flute ever since I came back from a trip to the Andes. I hope I will be able to do justice to this beautiful instrument. It s masterfully constructed and has a lovely sound even though I m still learning how to play.

"Homemade Music"

Each year at Christmas I look at the NOVICA catalog for gifts especially from Peru. I have no idea yet how this flute sounds BUT it looks elegant and hand made just the kind of gift I love to give.
