Watch the incredible Peruvian Inca wind instrument

The Peruvian Inca wind instruments are incredible objects that manage to mimic the sound of animals using only water and air.

Otherwise known as the whistling water jar, the instrument has been around for centuries and is an extraordinary example of how water and air can be used together to create intriguing sounds. As the water moves from compartment A to B, air is pushed out of compartment B. Limiting the air inlet then creates these incredible sounds!

In the video above, the different variations of the instruments are demonstrated. The instruments can be found in the Inca Museum in Cusco.
