We very much hope that you are all in good health and that you are able to make the best of the current situation. We know you are reading a lot of messages like this at the moment, however, we feel it is important to be in touch and want to give you a short update from our side.
Our online shop remains open! If you have any questions you can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are all healthy at the moment, taking care of ourselves and trying to get Kalango through this difficult time. We had to cancel all upcoming festival dates including our festival flag ship store at the International Samba Festival in Coburg. All but one colleague who manages our warehouse are currently working from home.
We process incoming orders every day and ship several times a week under special precautions.
Without the small brands life would be pretty boring - we need your support!
Coping with the effects of the Coronavirus is probably one of the biggest challenges in our company history. Mainly because like many other small, independent music stores, online shops and self-employed people, we don't have great reserves for such exceptional situations. Missing sales, interrupted supply chains or sickness related absences in the team can quickly lead to existential problems.
Take the opportunity to slow down and get in touch with your music, your playing techniques, take online courses, play indoor instruments (pandeiro, cavaquinho, guitar, practice-instruments...), sing from songbooks, educate yourself, read books on the subject, exchange ideas, get your instruments in shape- and let us know how we can help you.
With kindness and by helping eachother, in particular the elderly and weaker ones, we can make it through these times. And, if possible, spend your money at small specialised shops or the small shops in your neighbourhood instead of feeding the big online giants and supermarkets. Without the small brands it will get really-really boring very quickly.
So much from our side. Now it's up to you.
Please take care of yourselves! Please inform yourself!
But above all: #staythefuckhome
