Those who follow me knows I've started making and playing bamboo flutes two years ago. I've learned to play the Native American Flute (NAF), the Quena, the Quenacho and the Zampoña. One of the songs I've always wanted to play is "El Condor Pasa" made popular in the English world by Simon and Garfunkel with their version "El Condor Pasa (If I could)".
One thing I didn't know until I started to listen around for the Andean version is that the S&G version only used a section of the actual song. In the Andean version, the song changes rhythm and mood, it becomes faster and happier as you reach the end.
With a Chilean friend of mine, we recorded our version of "El Condor Pasa" with Andean instruments including:
- Charango (like a small Ukulele)
- Zampoña (pan flute)
- Quena (rim-blown flute)
- Bombo (drum)
Here is our song on Spotify. If you have a Spotify account, I would appreciate a little follow 🥰:
We also recorded a video clip available on Youtube (subscribe or like 😉). It was recorded at a very cool local trail:
The tracking, mixing, mastering of the audio (Logic Pro) and video editing (DaVinci Resolve) is done by me, hopefully it sounds and looks decent. The

I think I should start from clapping 👏👏👏👏
This is good, and to think you just learned and your playing so efficiently.
Your good please .
What better way to enjoy good sound as this, than just sit back in comfy and enjoy..
And you did great with Editing.
Please it's overall nice one😊!
I’ll probably add this one when I get onto my big rig. I’m following you on Spotify but following doesn’t seem to do anything useful for me so I hope it’s doing something useful for you 🙃
You publish content on spotify too?
Thank you :-)
No I don't know the first thing about music, I just listen to it XD
The big rig is my desktop, I also have a small rig which is a laptop. Not to be confused with the rig (no preceding descriptor XD) for moving characters XD
Wow! This is so soothing! Listening to it made me sleepy but in a happy good way.
You are a good musician. Hats off to you. You have a new subscriber on your YouTube channel my friend.
Thank you :-)
Woahoo!!! What was that? No I mean how did you guys do that? Let's not even talk about how well you guys played those instruments yet, that video editing was superb!!! Bravo!
I've never really liked listening to flutes that much but mind you I don't hate it, I just don't get the opportunity to listen to it too often and the few I've listened to are not as good as what I just heard just now. And the most interesting part was you've just learned it for two years!
I rest my case, if not I might just keep in talking, actually I'm speechless, what am I saying? 😅, this is beautiful, I !LUV it ❤️.

You made my day (or night 😅).
Hahaha, any of them. You actually made my week, those melodies were just so unique and addictive too 😂.
So you are going to bed now? What's the time over there?
It's 2:41am now. I'm still at work, I'm monitoring our streaming systems for the World Cup.
Oh wow! That's late but I guess you are use to it.
Yeah, world cup, I think I'm loving the sound of that even more now, I'm not really a fan of football but I do know it's fun to watch, hehe.
Who are you supporting?
How are you dear friend @quochuy good morning
It is good to know that you have learned to play this beautiful instrument.
I loved the video, beautiful version
Good night 😅 my friend.
Thanks for listening. It's a beautiful song, I'm so happy I managed to play it in full.
loved it! and I just subscribe to your Youtube channel as well. 🤗
The vibes are amazing!
Personally I like playing the flute a lot and the sound of the bass makes me more excited.
And this flute playing talent is a talent that is not in everyone, I want to say it is an Xor given talent, it is not possible for many people to try and after many efforts, it can't achieve success, so your skills and experience help me. I'm so glad to know that I have the opportunity to work in such a community of people with all kinds of experiences.
This is beautiful! It has been the best 4 minutes of my day today, listening to this!!!! 😍😍😍😍...Thank you so much!...Great talent!...This music touches the soul!...
Thank you so much for your comment. I'm glad our music touched you.
Keep crushing it!
Beautiful music and that song is a favorite of mine. Well done with the video and congrats!
What a song!! I love it!! It makes me feel so connected with Latin America! You are not from here and you’ve caught perfectly the spirit!!
Love the vibe I get while listening to your track. Good job! :)
So good to hear. Please keep it up. I love that
