About the tour

In this music demonstration, we will discover the sounds of some prehispanic instruments that are currently extinct or no longer used by musicians and are only found in burials in archaeological sites. Guided by Dante Ayala, an expert in indigenous musical instruments, researcher and musician we will rediscover together the sounds of long-forgotten instruments by his wide collection of musical instruments, most of them made by himself, and the mystic behind each of these pieces in a very relaxing music session. Disclaimer: during this event we will display traditional instruments made of animal bones, we advise discretion if you are sensitive to this topic. Thanks
