  Andean Nation | Music History
The wind and percussion instruments indigenous to the Andean world existed in Pre-Colombian America hundreds of years prior to the advent of the Incas (1200-1500 A.D.) Archaeological excavations have proven that certain musical instruments in the Andean highlands were being played well before the birth of Christ.
The arrival of the first Spaniards to the Andean highlands in the beginning of the sixteenth century marked the beginning of the end for the Incas and many facets of their illustrious culture.
Musically, it was the start of many transformations and the introduction of new instruments never before seen in the Americas.

The most commonly used in the vast majority of Andean music are the siku and sanka for normal melodies, and the toyos for a mesmerising bass sound.
The Andean panpipes are generally played either with one player playing two rows of pipes, or they may also be played by two players, each with a separate row, in "dialogando".

 Music videos from the South American Andes
through Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and Chile, Andean music represents a diversity of musical styles within a framework of easily recognizable sounds incorporating many of the same instruments such as the guitar, zampoña, charango, bombo drums, violins and a variety of flutes and woodwind instruments.
Identified with the same area inhabited by the ancient Incans, it is thought that when the Spaniards arrived in the Andes later in the 16th century they brought string instruments which eventually resulted in the creation of the charango, a 10 to 12 string mandolin-sized instrument associated with Andean music.
