Surdo Axé 18'' x 43 cm - short surdo for Samba Reggae and Bahia styles

Short and compact 18'' surdo - a handy size for all Samba Reggae fans!
In the last couple of years the short surdos have become more and more popular in Brazil and in Europe. You used to see the short surdos only in a few of Salvador´s blocos like e.g. Timbalada or Ilé Aiyê. Being shorter than other surdo types, they produce the typical dry Samba Reggae and Afro Samba sounds with short sustain and of course they also are lighter.
Typical Contemporanea: Thicker aluminium is used for the shell providing a full and voluminous bass!
The aluminium is polished, the hardware is chromed.

Standard ex fabric: nylon heads

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.
