New Huaca's!; Introducing a new Huacamaker
Topic Started: 4 Nov 2016, 09:09 PM (399 Views)

Hi, I'm Hans Houkes from Leuke Fluitjes in Holland and I'm making ceramic instruments already for 35 years. For anyone that is still interested in Huac's: with great input from Alan Tower and Sharon Rowell herself i proudly can tell you that since one year now i'm making beautiful and full functional Huac's in different sizes, shapes and tuning. The basic Huaca has two equal tuned melody chambers with an almost chromatic octave + 1 and a drone with four notes that you play with the hand palms. For anyone that's interested: www.leukefluitjes.nl/Huaca or Facebook. I'm working on a english page too on the moment. Hope you like them!

The red pepper huacas are quite impressive. How much do you charge for huacas in that range?

Yay! A Dutch person like me!
I'm impressed with your work and I like the sound of your instruments. I think I might attend one of your workshops in the new year. Thank you for sharing this with us.

What is a huaca?
I hope my question does not look daring (I must say I'm new to the world of the ocarinas). I would appreciate somebody telling me what it is.

By the way, the image does not work.

You can learn more about huacas in the book From Mud to Music. They were created by Sharon Rowell Harp.

What is a huaca?
Basically, a huaca is a triple chambered harmony ocarina where you play all three chambers at the same time. One is a drone that either plays the same note or is palmed for few notes, while you use a hand on each of the other chambers to finger them. Though you might expect they were some kind of traditional instrument, they are a relatively recent invention from the 1980s that hardly anyone has learned how to make other than the inventor, Sharon Rowell. There are different types, and the melodic one is complicated enough that it needs to be custom fit so you can use your fingers on the melody chambers and your palms on the drone chamber at the same time.
