Often, before our medical team leaves Ecuador, we are treated to an evening of music after dinner. The traditional Andean music includes flute, pan pipes, charango (small 10-stringed instrument, originally made with an armadillo shell) as well as guitar and simple percussions.

Hmmm… After listening a bit I almost think they’re the same tune… If not, pretty close.
