The huayno is a genre of popular Andean Music from Peru. It is especially common in Peru and Bolivia. It originated in Peru as a combination of traditional rural folk music and popular urban dance music. High-pitched vocals are accompanied by a variety of instruments, including flute, harp, panpipe, accordion, saxophone, charango, lute, violin, guitar, and mandolin. Some elements of huayno originate in the music of the pre-Columbian Andes. Huayno utilizes a distinctive rhythm in which the first beat is stressed and followed by two short beats.
