Primordial, Haunting, and Beautiful Ancient Peruvian Instrument

A few more wonderful additions to my Sound Bath instruments see the pictures above and listen to the sound of the primordial, haunting and beautiful Peruvian Water Vessel Whistle. Click the link: then scroll down the gallery page to hear the sound of the owl Peruvian Water Vessel. (see the picture on the page of the owl vessel and play the sound bite.)

Peruvian Whistling Water Vessels

(Pictured above)

Created from clay and fashioned in the likeness of local wildlife or shamanic symbolism, the Peruvian whistling vessel is so much more than a decorative container for liquids or unique instrument - it is a shamanic tool as well. Known as huaco silbadores in Spanish, these modern vessels are reproductions of those made by ancient, Pre-Columbian peoples of the Andes. In fact, archeological examples of these unique whistles date as far back as 500 BCE, with many of them being found in modern-day Peru.

At first, these unique sound-producing objects were thought to just be liquid containers, albeit ornate ones. For hundreds of years, anthropologists referred to them as such in museum collections. The majority of these whistling vessels were discovered interred as burial goods, likely as offerings for the afterlife - something that confirmed how sacred these objects truly were. The art and artistry that go into these vessels are thought to have transcended civilizations, as there are examples of both the Inca and Moche cultures of the Andes making and using these objects.

There are four pictured above. I have a medium sized owl, large sized wolf, a large McCaw, and a smaller warbling bird each of which have their own unique sound. Played together they will sound like a night in the forest. These are hand-made in Peru by an artist who creates replicas of ancient Peruvian artifacts.

More Additions:

Another addition seen above is a Hardwood Music Company wood tongue drum. Hand-made by Michael Thiele.

"The drawing of sound from wood is among the oldest and most primal manifestations of human communication and musical expression."

- Michael Thiele, Founder of Hardwood Music

Also pictured above is a new Rainstick made from beautiful wood which sounds like a heavey rain storm. I have also added a new lower frequency wind gong to play along with my symphonic gong.
