The Mayan Trumpet. Voice of Earth

Years ago, while playing a didgeridoo on the sidewalks of Mexico´s Playa del Carmen, musician Luis Bernardo Mendez Sanchez wa taken on a magical adventure that lead him to rediscover the same instrument in his own country, in the heart of the Mexican Lacandon forest. An inner voice led him to the Mayan Trumpet, known by its indigenous name "Incus utop chek" or "Tree flower trumpet".
