Huehuetl, which in the Mexican Nahuatl language means old or ancient, presents representative indigenous dances and music performed on musical instruments from the Mayan, Olmec, and Aztec cultures and from currently existing descendants of these cultures such as Huaves, Mayo-Yaquis, Tarahumara, and Huicholes.The Aztecs were fine musicians, employing a wide range of instrument types, materials, pitches, tones, scales, rhythms and playing styles. Central to any Aztec musical performance was the vertical wooden drum (known as 'huehuetl') and the horizontal slit gong drum known as teponaztli. The huehuetl belongs to a class of musical instrument known as 'membranophone' because it has a skin or membrane surface to play on. The word 'huehuetl' means 'venerable old [man]' in N?huatl, the language of the Aztecs, and the huehuetl has been called 'the most venerated of Mexican instruments'
