Jantarka. A single piece of dense wood with a narrow grain. The outside is diamond shaped in cross-section and tapers towards each end. The end faces are smooth and flat, but the other surfaces are roughly textured with tool marks. A bore runs longditudinally through the instrument and terminates at circular holes at either end with diameters 9.5 mm and 11 mm. The bore is both wider and more uneven inside.
This two-note flute is played by women in conjunction with the duct flutes saripalka (M24a-1987) and malichu (M24f-1987) pinkillus in the Calcha area from Fiesta de los Reyes (Epiphany) to Carnival (Shrove Tuesday). It is played panpipe style, by blowing across the top (wider end uppermost). The second finger of the right hand is used to stop or unstop the lower end and thus change the pitch.
