Details

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. Dionisio Quilla crafts this piece from diablo fuerte, or yellow wood and engraves it with the name taki, which in Quechua means "song."

The quena arrives with a colorful carrying case.

"Just what I wanted"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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.
