Taller de Instrumentos Andinos-Nañda Mañachi

Music in Peguche

Across from the basketball courts, Jose Luis Pichamba crafts traditional musical instruments, including panpipes, drums, and charangos, the 10-stringed mandolin-like instruments traditionally made from armadillo shells (but now made from woods like cedar). Jose's four decades as a professional musician, making instruments for his colleagues, means you'll get a quality item. Ask politely and you'll get a one-song demo, too!
