Los aerófonos de barro del Valle de Sula, Honduras

Teresa M. Campos, ilustraciones de David Banegas

Este artículo es el resultado de una investigación que reúne diferentes experiencias. Intentamos dar a conocer la colección de 1325 aerófonos de barro que custodia el Museo de Antropología e Historia de San Pedro Sula, Honduras. El museógrafo David Banegas, experto ceramista, empezó analizando su estructura. Me uní a la investigación, como etnóloga, con la intención de explicar sus posibles usos y su presencia en el tiempo y el espacio; para eso fui relacionando la información de varias fuentes etnohistóricas y de estudios sobre el tema, con datos obtenidos en el campo. Finalmente, visitamos a alfareros hondureños que fabrican aerófonos de barro, semejantes a los prehispánicos. Con este trabajo queremos atraer la atención de otros investigadores, en especial de arqueólogos y músicos.

This contribution is the result of a research which unites different experiences. Its aim is to introduce the collection of 1325 clay aerophones which forms part of the Museo de Antropología e Historia at San Pedro Sula, Honduras. The museographer and expert ceramicist David Banegas analyzed their structure. As an ethnologist I joined the research with the intention to explain their possible uses and to determine their distribution in time and space; therefore I linked the data provided by ethnohistorical sources and related studies with information gathered in the field. Finally, we visited several Honduran potters who produce clay aerophones similar to the pre-Hispanic ones. By way of this contribution we would like to bring the collection to the attention of other researchers, especially archaeologists and musicians.
