Details

Known as toc toc for the sound that they make, these percussion instruments are essential to any Peruvian musical ensemble. Their origin can be traced as far back as pre-Hispanic times. Dionisio Quilla carves the instrument from pumaquiro wood in the shape of two hollow cylinders for double toc toc. One side is longer than the other, resulting in contrasting beats when struck with a stick. The single toc toc features a low relief surface to enrich the sound. The playing sticks are carved from capirona wood.

"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.

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.
