Armadillo - Virtual Charango is a virtual instrument based on a south american instrument called "Charango".
The origin of the instrument dates back to the time when south american lands were colonies of european kingdoms. Back then, the natives quickly learnt how to play and build the musical instruments the europeans had brought, and soon they where building their own versions of those instruments. Some reserachers have found evidence of charangos being used during the XVII century, but no-one has ever been able to give a definitive answer to the question of when or where was that instrument created.
Today, it is possible to find charangos being used in Perú, Chile, Bolivia and Argentina, with many different sizes, number of strings and tunnings available.
