The Abuelos Flute - Harmonics is one of the oldest wind instruments. Known in the Andes as Flute of the Abuelos (grandparents) because it is played by the elders of the village and communicates with the ancestral spirits. This flute has no holes, is constructed with a long narrow barrel and a whistled mouthpiece. The quality of this whistle and the way it blows emit tones of the harmonic series corresponding to the tuning of the root note, combining melodies with intervals of octaves, fifths and thirds.
