Kena-taki

(Gonzalo Vargas)

Kena-taki

An instrumental track composed by the Bolivian musician Gonzalo Vargas, one of the founders of USA-based Inkuyo. On the original album ("The double-headed serpent", 1993), the song title was translated as "Singing flute", though in Quechua it means "Song of quena" (the quena being an end blown notched flute).

The highlights on this track are the charango (by Chilean Omar Sepúlveda), the quena (by Chilean Jorge Tapia) and the panpipes (by Vargas himself).
