This video was taken on a trip to Peru before I started playing the uke.
The man in the video is a luthier.
Can you help name these instruments?

The instrument he is strumming sounds/looks like a charango and seems to have a gourd bowl back. They are usually strung with steel strings.

On the table looks like different variants of either a charango or cuatro cubano in different shapes and scale lengths, as well as some Andean/Chilean type wooden flutes.

The instrument that is passed to the young man seated next to the player is a charango ... made from the shell of an armadillo ... if you look carefully at about 0:23 you can see the head and ears of the animal where the neck of the instrument meets the body ... probably not necessary in this day and age :mad:
