Inca wind instruments

The Incas were known to have complicated recording devices fashioned from strings of the wool of llamas and alpacas and a cyclical culture, which may have something in common with the enduring amnesia of Ukrainian culture - something that happened 6-8 years ago and the deep antiquity was equated, time was compressed and the past seemed to cease to exist. But, in my opinion, less well-known are their amazing musical vessels (if we believe the Peruvian reconstructor José Vitancio), which imitate animal sounds by means of water and air.
