The armadillo-shell instrument is the charango!! The hairy charangos are the most highly valued! Andean folk music is quite awesome! "El Condor Pasa" is actually a very old and tradition Andean folk song. I had an oppurtinity to hear a trad Andean band actually play it...beautiful. I guess the deer-hoof percussion doesn't make it into the busking bands? Wonder why...
