Sikuras de Colchane

Sikuras de Colchane

Músicos Aymara sikuriando allá por Colchane, pueblo de la provincia del Tamarugal (I Región de Tarapacá, Norte Grande de Chile) ubicado en pleno altiplano andino, junto al límite con Bolivia. Interpretan sikuras o sicuras, empleando la tradicional técnica de "trenzado" o "interpretación a mitades" (hocket); cada "mitad" está provista de una hilera complementaria de tubos resonadores que no "suenan" directamente, sino que proporcionan una mayor riqueza de armónicos a cada nota soplada en la hilera principal. Como es tradicional en este estilo, los flautistas ejecutan, a la vez, un membranófono (generalmente una wank'ara o un bombo).

[Aymara musicians in the small village of Colchane (Tamarugal province, I Region, Northern Chile) located in the Andean highlands, near the border with Bolivia. They're playing sicuras or sikuras, one of the many types of double-row Andean panpipes known as "siku". They are shown using the traditional hocket performing technique; each row of the panpipe is played by a different musician. Rows are provided with a complementary line of resonator pipes, which do not "sound" directly, but provide harmonics for every note blown on the main row. As is traditional in this style, panpipe performers play their flutes and a membranophone (usually a wank'ara or a drum) at the same time, in a pipe-and-tabor fashion].
