Made from the renewable crop of bamboo. These are the core instruments played in the Andes for hundreds of years. The pan flute or pan pipe (also known as panflute or panpipes) is an ancient some professional instruments use wax or pellets to tune the fundamental. The pan flute, also referred to as the syrinx, is an ancient musical instrument that consists of 10 or more pipes in increasing lengths bound together as one wind instrument. It is played vertically but blown horizontally across the open inner edges of the pipes. The air blown through the instrument creates a series of pulses that generate sound waves within the tubes. Each pipe is tuned to a different note for producing a wide range of sound. In Peru it is commonly referred to as the Antara or Zamponia and there are surely other names that can be added because it is a common instrument in the diverse indigenous tribes of the Amazon forest. Pan pipes are perhaps the universal instrument par excellence stemming from remote times that developed in all cultures in the four corners of the Earth. It is curious that this instrument has occurred in similar shapes and forms everywhere during different periods. The zampoña, Antara or Andara are considered the complete nusical instruments, since they are closely related to most pre-Columbian cultures, There is still a certain musical mystique related to inheritance, genes or tradition which implies a totally different and smooth sound, a certain nostalgia and depth, signs of the great sensitivity of the pre - Columbian cultures.
