Flute Color

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.


Our Andean Quenacho is tuned to an E major scale and has the ability to play chromatically. For other keys, please email us at


- Handcrafted from the highest quality Tonkin Bamboo. 
- Handmade flute bag to protect it from the elements included. Please note that case material/design may vary based on availability.


If you have any questions about what type of flute to order, feel free to message me. I'd be happy to work with you and help you find the best option for your playing style and musical needs.
