PUCUY - Musical Instruments Crafts

Pucuy is a wind instrument of the Comechingón culture (Córdoba-ARGENTINA)

, built in clay or ceramics. This ancestral musical instrument magically reproduces a deep sound like the wind. It is simple to execute. Its size ranges from 10 to 15 centimeters, it is one of the only cross-blowing wind instruments and finger-sliding fingering in the world.

This ritual wind instrument of the Comechingón culture (existed in the north of the province of Cordoba-Argentina) is a relatively recent discovery, it was suspected that it could be a drinking vessel, but the hole seen on the side made a change of mind, So it was supposed to be a musical instrument, since it adapted to the hand and mouth easily, in addition the sound is simple to produce.
It is taken with the left hand with the hole forwards and initially covered, the other hand slides a finger that partially covers the upper opening. It is blown across the top where the opening becomes wider, there is a sound there, the sound variations are achieved by sliding the finger of the main opening and also the front hole.
