Quena Flute – Kena

Woodwind Instruments

If you are looking to buy a professional Andean quena flute, or kena as they are often known in the Western world – Original Artisan has one of the widest and most successful ranges available and we’ve been shipping our top class handmade, fairtrade quena and quenacho flutes to hundreds of satisfied customers around the world since we began trading almost two years ago.

Wooden Quena Flute – Wayacan (Guayacan)

The Andean quena or kena flute has for generations been one of South America’s most highly revered instruments, regarded as sacred in times past, the quena still plays a significant role in the events and everyday lives of the Andean people.

Used in religious ceremony, family occasions, weddings and celebrations across South America and in many countries around the world, this remarkable yet simple wooden flute symbolises the true vibrant nature of the people of the Andes.

Achieving almost mythical status throughout the history of the Indian tribes, the quena is today proving to be even more popular with modern day musicians and enthusiasts than ever before.

Held in high regard and increasingly used in film making by directors and composers such as Tony Hinnigan and Gustavo Santaolalla, for classic films such as Braveheart & Brokeback Mountain, it is easy to see why this beautiful wooden flute has become so popular.

Aymara Jacaranda Quena Flute

As the western world familiarises itself with cultures past and modern technology and the internet brings the music and cultures of the world closer together, the wooden quena flute remains one of the most haunting yet beautiful sounds of the Andes, symbolising the colourful lives and struggles of the indigenous tribes people of South America.

Sought after by professional and amateur musicians alike, the quena is an ideal instrument for anyone looking to venture into the world of woodwind instruments.

The Andean quena flute has either 4, 5 or 6 holes in the front, one at the back, and a u shaped notch at the mouth. The six hole quena has a musical span of 3 octaves.

These instruments are made from various materials including bamboo, bone and other beautiful South American woods such as Jacaranda and Wayacan.

Although only an opinion, one of my regular customers who is a very experienced quena player described this flute as

‘…The bone Quena sounds like a high-end Shakuhachi and I can easily find at least 3 octaves. Just a great Flute! I have 28 Flutes, some very expensive ones, and I must say that this bone Quena is absolutely THE BEST!’

Discounted Price

This quena flute has been discounted. One of the smaller circles of mother of pearl shown in the main design can be seen to be a little more transparent than the others. Although this is a natural characteristic and not a fault, as we are perfectionists, we thought we'd offer a discount in case this affected the buyers enjoyment of the flute.

All the flutes for sale on Original Artisan operate at high levels and these Walata flutes are no exception.
