Pandeiro Black 12'' - Carlos Café Signature Contemporanea PRO

Size up - an oldschool XL Pagode pandeiro for big hands and fat sounds! A Pagode pandeiro just the way we like it - fat sounds, stylish in black and classy hardware!
The Pandeiro Black from the Carlos Cafe line is an absolute favourite and a real stage eye-catcher! Crisp and dry samba sounds are typical at any authentic Pagode session, your slaps have never sounded better, and the sturdy formica frame makes it easy to get the high tuning you want from this type of pandeiro. Play your Partido Alto with style, with the Carlos Café line, Contemporanea has released a really fine signature pandeiro.
Carlos Café do Pandeiro is a popular musician and Contemporanea endorser from São Paulo who specialises in pandeiro playing and has established his own playing techniques.

Beautiful instrument

Great sound and very well built. I’m happy with this purchase

Love my 12 inch Cafe Black

I bought this after beginning learning on ten inch pandeiros and wanting to improve my dexterity and range of hand movements and it’s proving quite a challenge.
Fabulous quality and tuning ability comes with this pandeiro, I love the fact that you get a spare skin, hope I won’t need it any time soon!
It will hopefully take my learning to new levels, I love the sound of the Cafe Black, it’s big and meaty and my Brazilian heroes are playing it.
Great service from Kalango as always, providing the instruments we just can’t get in the UK.

CONTEMPORÂNEA in Brazil This brand has a long tradition and good reputation in... more




This brand has a long tradition and good reputation in Brazil. Intensive contact to the musicians has always been an important part of their business strategy. They not only sell instruments, but mainly live their music. Every Saturday morning, many musicians meet up in CONTEMPORÂNEA´S music shop in the historic center of São Paulo. In a special back room, musicians of every age play Choro. The pagodeiros meet up in front of the shop for playing their sessions. Many of São Paulo´s smaller and larger Samba schools play CONTEMPORÂNEA instruments.


Also in Europe CONTEMPORÂNEA is a popular brand which you sometimes even find in drum- and percussion shops that don´t have so much to do with Samba.



The instruments of the LIGHT line are made of matt aluminium. Kept in a simple design and not being polished, the LIGHT line can be offered at a lower price and without suffering quality loss in terms of sound or durability. The robust PRO line is made of polished aluminium or wood.

Compared to other brands that also use aluminium for building instruments, CONTEMPORÂNEA instruments made from aluminium stand out by being built of thicker material which provides a massive sound to repinique, caixa and surdo, but therefore also a higher weight.
