The Antara is a single row panpipe that is tuned to
a pentatonic scale. Both the antara and zampoņa are pre-Colombian in
origin. Although they do differ from each other in their respective
tunings and construction. The antara are played solo, or traditionally
with percussion or in recent additions of many of the Andean
Antara have a total of 14 bamboo tubes; they [the
antara] are assembled together by having up to four strips of bamboo
serving their function as braces thus providing structural support for
the instrument. Coloured thread holds the instrument together and
provides ornamentation to the instrument.
