Having a hard time deciding which Siku to purchase? Our Siku Bundle includes the Chuli, Malta, and Sanka.
The Siku is native to the Andes mountains. Also referred to as Zampoña in Spanish, it is a pre-colombian instrument that is prevalent in the indigenous communites of the Altiplano region between Bolivia and Peru. The Siku is now popular throughout much of Latin America, and tourists may be exposed to the instrument while traveling in Mexico or Central America. This is a recent phenomenon occurring in the last 30 years as Andean music has gained in popularity. The origins, however, are specific: the central Andean mountain chain running through present day Bolivia and Peru.
