      Disambiguation: A long lip reed instrument peculiar to the people of Gran Chaco of Bolivia, Northern Chile, and Argentine Northwest.^^

      Description: The Erke could range from 3 to 7 metres in length. This owes to the fact that it is made up of multiple lengths of cane joined end-to-end so as to form one narrow tube. Internally, the nodes of the cane are stripped away and externally, the cane is wrapped with gut or wool. To top it off, the end consists of a cow horn or brass amplifier.

      History: In a traditional perspective, only adult men play the erke, and it is played during rituals. Although the late 20th century brought about the use of the erke for secular music, it should be noted that the indigenous and criollo peoples of the Andes used the erke only for ritual purposes.
