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.
