Quena - Kena & Quenacho Flute - Andean Woodwind Instruments

Featuring beautiful native South American flutes for sale. The quena and the larger more deeper sounding quenacho.

Quena (Kena) Flute

The quena or kena as it is also known, is a traditional Andean flute used commonly in all areas of traditional Peruvian music. The quena produces an exceptionally beautiful sound and has been played by the indigenous tribes of South America and their ancestors for countless generations, once being revered as a sacred icon. Although originating from the mountains of South America, the quena is a favourite of musicians and woodwind players all around the world.

Quenas are often made of bamboo and can have 4, 5 or 6 holes in the front, one at the back, and a u shaped notch at the mouth of the instrument. The six hole quena has a musical span of 3 octaves.

Take a look at this excellent video by Eric the flute maker. A true flute genius and master flute maker who really expresses the true nature of the Andean flute in his own special way.

Check out his excellent website for some truly amazing flutes and other instruments. While you visit his site, please take a look at his amazing  book – Bumping Into God. The story of his adventures throughout Central and South America from which all proceeds go to the Kids of Cascabel.

Quena Flutes on Street Musician

The professional quenas you see below are also exceptional instruments made from beautiful woods native to South America such as Jacaranda and Wayacan wood. They have been created by a professional Bolivian musician and luthier who has been making instruments and playing and touring South America for many years. The precision instruments he makes in his workshop are renoun worldwide.

As with the Charangos and all other instruments sold on this site, these flutes are of exceptional quality and should not be confused with other South American souvenir type tourist flutes that are of substandard quality and manufactured on mass with no attention to sound quality and tuning.

These quena flutes are precision concert tuned to the scale of Sol Major (G) / Mi minor (Em). I have many types available including Jacaranda quenas, Wayacan quenas, bone quenas and a few extra special ‘tweaked’ concert quenas. I also have a few transverse or side blown flutes available for purchase.

All quena, quenacho and transverse  flutes purchased here on Street Musician come with a beautiful woven cover worth £6.99 absolutely free.

Below we have several types of professional handmade quenas made from native South American materials and also featuring a very special ‘tweaked’ concert quena made especially for Street Musician for the flute connoisseur.

Here is a wonderful example of one of my tweaked quena flutes being played by one of my international clients.

Mamani ‘Tweaked’ Jacaranda Concert Quena Flute

Click on the video below to hear this flute being played.

The sound in the first half of this video has not been enhanced in any way and was recorded in a standard household room, using a simple computer webcam and nothing else. As you can hear, this Mamani concert quena has an amazing sound even without any mics, eq or effects.

Most online songs, videos and quena demos are usually recorded professionally with added eq and effects such as reverb and delay to enhance that ‘mystical’ feeling produced by these types of instruments.

So to keep our demos in line with others you might find on the web and to give you an idea of how it sounds in comparison, I have included some basic reverb in the last half of the sample, to give that real ‘Spirit of the Andes’ touch you’ll be familiar with.

Tweaked Jacaranda Quena

<p style=”text-align: center;”>…</p>
<p style=”text-align: center;”>The sound in the first half of these videos has not been enhanced in any way and was recorded in a standard household room, using a simple computer webcam and nothing else. As you can hear, this Mamani concert quena has an amazing sound even without any mics, eq or effects.</p>
<p style=”text-align: center;”>Most online songs, videos and quena demos are usually recorded professionally with added eq and effects such as reverb and delay to enhance that ‘mystical’ feeling produced by these types of instruments.</p>
<p style=”text-align: center;”>So to keep our demos in line with others you might find on the web and to give you an idea of how it sounds in comparison, I have included some basic reverb in the last half of each sample, to give our vids that real ‘Spirit of the Andes’ touch you’ll be familiar with.</p>

    Hi my name is philippe I m living in quebec city canada.I m playing quenas for a few years now and Im looking for some goods quenas.my favorite players are facio santillan and ramond thevenot.Can you propose me some of your best quality quenas differently tune .Whish you respond me as soon as you can.

  • Hi Philippe,
    My best quality Quenas, for the price are most definately the ‘tweaked’ quena’s which I usually have for sale. Unfortunately I am out of stock at the moment but will have some more arriving very shortly in about 4 days time. The ‘Aymara’ quenas are less expensive but also very good instruments and I get great feedback from them. If you want a very ‘special’ Quena then my ‘bone’ quenas are absolutely beautiful, I usually have ones with metal or Ebony mouth pieces. The metal one is beautiful and I sold my last ebony mouthpiece one recently, but will have another coming in a few days. If money is not an object, I can request a pure ebony one to be made for you for a few hundred dollars also. I think it all depends on your budget.
    So all in all, I would say…1. Tweaked quena. 2. Aymara quena and 3. If you want an extra special one for showing off, the bone quena.
    Hopefully, in a few days I will have much more stock for you to view..
    Hope that helps.

    Can you make concert tune quenas keyed in
    A, B, C and D.

  • Thanks for your enquiry, I’ve emailed you with a reply.

    Hi, I’d like to buy one of your flutes but I already have an Shakuhachie made by Erik the Flute and I just can’t get a sound out of it!
    I notice that Erik’s cut in the blown end is deeper and more V like than the ones shown in your photos – could that make things more difficult?

  • Hi Frank, all my flutes have mouthpeices with slightly differing size notches and shapes, but I think you’ll find once you can get a note out of one, you should be able to play them all if you can acheive the right technique.

    They all differ slightly but the method is pretty much the same across all quena and quenacho. Not sure about the Shakuhachie.

    Hello,
    I saw (and heard) an amazing wooden quena very much like yours except with a llama bone moutpiece. Do you have or can you get anything like this?

  • Hi Paulo. Thank you for your enquiry.

    If you check out my artisan site in the woodwind section, http://www.originalartisan.com/shop/products/musical-instruments/woodwind/ you will see I have a wide range of quenas, but at the moment I do not have any with a bone mouthpiece. However, our luthiers do make them by request and I could source one for you without a problem.

    It may take a while to make one and be shipped here to the U.K but I do specialise in personal orders at no extra cost, and there is never any obligation to buy unless you are 100% satisfied with your product.

    As always, my products are also covered by my 14 day guarantee.

    Check out my site and let me know if you would like me to arrange a personal order. I’d be happy to oblige.

    Thanks

    Hello,
    loving the Aymara quena I’ve just bought from you. I was wondering if you have any quenachos for sale in the same key of G.
    Many thanks, Martin.

  • Hi Martin,

    Thanks for your kind comments and I’m so glad you like your quena flute.

    I do have other quenachos for sale but they are all generally tuned to the scale of Re Major (D) / Si minor (Bm). Quenachos are not usually made in the key of G as they would have to be made much larger to accommodate the lower notes. However, I do have a stunning Mama quena, which is quite large and tuned to G Maj.

    It is a really amazing instrument and is lovely to play. You can see how big it is in relation to the quena and quenachos pictured alongside it in the gallery photos.

    Take a look at it on my website..Original Artisan

    If you would like to try this flute under my 14 guarantee, just let me know and I can send it out to you and you can see if you like it.

    Best Regards

    I would love to buy either a quena or a quenacho. I play the flute and love the sound of these instruments, particularly the quenacho. Can you tell me whether one is easier to play than the other. Would I be better starting with the quena? I have quite small hands so wonder if that will make the quenacho more difficult.
    Also is it very different to blowing the flute?

  • Hi Marilyn,

    Thank you for your enquiry. I would say the quena is definitely a much easier instrument to play than the quenacho, this generally down to the size of the quenacho being a much larger instrument. If you have small hands, I would advise to start with a quena as I have had a good few clients in the past who have found the quenacho a real struggle to play due to the wider spacing of the finger holes.

    You’ll probably find the technique of blowing the quena quite difficult to master initially, but I’m sure once you’ve managed to gain the first few notes, you’ll find it a pleasure to play and should progress quite easily. The real trick is to master your breath control to be able to hit the various octaves at will and to keep the correct playing angle to keep your flute in tune.

    Most people including myself, find them very addictive to play and a real challenge. I’m sure you will too.

    Let me know if you’d like to try one.

    Thanks

    Hi, I have a kena flute and I am keen to learn how to play, does anyone know if you can get a book in english with the fingering charts to play music and different tunes, hope someone can help.
