Bamboo zampona panpipes, ‘Inca Serenade’ (pair) – Hand Crafted Bamboo Wind Instrument
NOVICA, in association with National Geographic, searches the world to work directly with the finest artisan designers. The sweet tunes of the zampoña panpipe serenade the Andes with nostalgic songs. “The use of the zampoña has become widespread across the world and it is played at different functions,” explains Benito Tito. “In Peru we play the zampoña during special ceremonies and traditional rites.” Tito crafts this zampoña by hand with 13 bamboo reeds of the same diameter but different length. The pipes are tied together with a woven ribbon. Tito includes a smaller zampoña as a gift. The set includes woven cases for storing.
Benito Tito says,
“Aiding in the preservation of our musical heritage is my family’s legacy. We have carefully crafted traditional instruments for generations.”
