The Quena is a woodwind instrument consisting of a hollow tube with holes cut for notes. It is played by placing the mouthpiece under the bottom lip & blowing. Originally constructed of animal bone or bamboo shoots, some Quenas today are made of wood. The smallest is called a ‘Quenilla’ & the largest is called a ‘Quenacho’. Although its origin is unclear, the Quena has been found in nearly all countries of Latin America.
