Information about delivery
Traditional ceramic quena from the Chincha culture 1100 - 1400 AD. It has 5 holes at the front and one at the back. The "qena" or "qina" is a word from the Aymara language that translates as a pierced object in allusion to the finger holes it presents. It is a flute that has a window, wrist, or bezel on the edge of the mouthpiece. The performer directs the air directly over the notch with the lower lip to produce the sound. Three specimens were found in a tomb of measures: small, medium, and large. They had the belief that music transcended death and this should accompany it, that is why they were broken and placed next to the body to accompany it to the other world.
