Native Peruvian Musical Instruments

A Temporary Exhibition at MNAAH worth visiting

Peru's cultural heritage is immensely varied. With such an overwhelming range smaller, but not less interesting or important parts of the Peruvian culture are often faded into the background. Since ancient times for example musical instruments play an important role in the life of indigenous people in the Andean and Amazon regions of Peru. Back then as today music is not only used to express feelings, but also to accentuate native rituals, ceremonies and festivities.

Showing and explaining these Peruvian treasures to a wider audience the National Museum of Archaeology, Anthropology and History in Lima opens an interesting temporary exhibition about Musical Instruments of the Andean and Amazon Regions (Instrumentos Musicales Andinos y Amazónicos) worth visiting.
