Abstract | Full Text

The article analyzes the version provided by Joan de Santa Cruz Pachacuti Yamqui Salcamaygua on the war waged between Incas and Chancas. We focus on the symbolic elements operating in this famous struggle and explore some particular components, such as musical instruments and their function in the analysis and contextualization of the war.
