The charango is a wonder in that it can create an abundance of textures, and can be played by the most beginner of musicians up to virtuoso level performers. Evolving out of the fusion of European string instruments with the sounds of the Americas, the charango is one of the most iconic sounds of South America, and for good reason. Check out our video demo of the charango and pick one up in the Didge Project store.
