The Quadruple Flutes of Teotihuacan Resurfaced

Dorothee Judith Arndt

The archaeological record of the ancient city of Teotihuacan holds the remains of many examples of ceramic multiple flutes with four pipes, known as quadruple flutes, and a variety of miniatures depicting the same kind of instrument. Even though quadruple flutes probably played an important role in ritual and ceremonial contexts of city life in Teotihuacan, they have not yet attracted much attention in the scientific community. Drawing on the pioneering works of musicologist Samuel Martí and archaeologist Laurette Séjourné, as well as recently discovered finds and newly obtained information, this paper provides a detailed discussion of the assemblage from Teotihuacan. Moreover, a comparison will be made with other quadruple flutes found in Mesoamerica, based primarily on morphological and iconographical considerations.

El registro arqueológico de la antigua ciudad de Teotihuacan contiene los restos de muchos especímenes de flautas múltiples de cerámica con cuatro tubos, conocidas como flautas cuádruples, y una variedad de miniaturas que representan el mismo tipo de instrumentos. Aunque es probable que las flautas cuádruples jugaban un papel importante en contextos rituales y ceremoniales de la vida urbana de Teotihuacan, no han recibido hasta la fecha mucha atención por parte de los científicos. Basado en los trabajos pioneros del musicólogo Samuel Martí y la arqueóloga Laurette Séjourné y en hallazgos y datos más recientes, el artículo proporciona una discusión detallada de la colección de estas flautas de proveniencia teotihuacana. Además, las compara con flautas cuádruples halladas en otros sitios de Mesoamérica, tomando en cuenta sobre todo sus rasgos morfológicos e iconográficos.
