Currently, Peruvians commemorate every June 15 (officially since 2006) the Day of the Andean Song, with the purpose of recognizing the music of the Andes as an ancestral and genuine testimony of the artistic richness that exists in the highlands.
Along with musical works that marked history - most of the pieces are heard and danced to this day - the use of pre-Columbian instruments such as the "antara" (a flute more than 7000 years old), cane flutes, zampoña, siku, quena, charango and Andean harp is highlighted.
