Exactly so. The charango is one of thousands of instruments that is not the historical vihuela. Among the millions who play or listen to the charango, there are probably only a handful who who care about an obscure Spanish renaissance instrument, its music, or the people (safely numbered in four figures, no doubt) who play it. The two sets just don't intersect much. H To get on or off this list see list information at http://www.cs.dartmouth.edu/~wbc/lute-admin/index.html
