Flute Making – Andean Highlands, Ecuador

Of course, I started on my own…. but had some  help with winding of the string especially. My completed flute looked like this.


We also learned about the variety of pan-flutes and other instruments during an exclusive musical demonstration.  Here are some video clips.
