A wonderful tune from the
Peruvian Andes. Tunes like this are usually played on pan pipes. Some of
these pipes can be over a metre in length. They also use a guitar like
instrument called a Charango. This is much smaller than a guitar. The body
is often made from the shell of an armadilo.
I've written this as a two part
arrangement for descant and tenor. In order to get that authentic Peruvian
sound, you need to tongue your recorder quite hard......particularly the
tenor recorder. Try to get a hard chuffing sound on every note.
