These panpipes are tuned to one note and bound with brightly dyed wool bands. These panpipes are known by several names: siku, zampoña, zampolla, with a name for this smallest one: chuli.
They are played widely amongst the Andes. The longest pipe is held on the right. They are tuned diatonically to the European scale (do re mi fa so la ti do). Handmade using traditional methods, by skilled artisans working with Manos Amigas, our fair trade partner in Peru.
