The Legend of the Quena

Legend says that many years ago there existed a King whose beautiful daughter died at a tender age. To honor his daughter, the King ordered that the Princess' femur bone be extracted and carved into a flute. He named it after his daughter 'Quena'. This way, the King thought, everytime he heard the beautiful sounds of the Quena, he would be reminded of his beautiful daughter.
