Percussion Instruments

HUAYLLIPACHA uses many kinds of percussion instrument sound and effects, most of them are traditional and some are contemporary these are the instruments we use:

BOMBO a cylindrical shaped drum found in the Andean region of Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Chile and Argentina. The bombo is played with a stick and a mallet, which strike the wooden rims and the head. The body of the drum is made out of a hollow tree, with the mounted goatskin retaining the animal's fur thus producing a very distinctive mellow and deep tone. David Salazar Quispe made the bombo in the picture; he carved and painted with Andes graphics.
