Zabumba 18'' aluminium - Izzo
|total height:||20 cm|
|weight (net):||3,733 kg|
18" aluminium zabumba for authentic Forró and a north-east-Brazilian dance night out
The zabumba is the heartbeat of any Forró-, Baião-, Xote- or Xaxado ensemble. Just like the surdo in Samba it plays the base and provides the pulse with its pushy rhythms and makes you wanting to jump up and dance with its syncopated beats. The playing technique is a little different: the upper head - which is fitted with a nylon head for a stronger attack - is played with a short, padded mallet, whilst the resonance head is played with a thin whip creating the typical contrast with contra rhythms. A good zabumba player knows how to make you dance even if you are not much of dancer. Always on his side - the triangle, the accordion and a singer. An 18" zabumba is a great medium size and offers plenty of possibilities within an ensemble.
Izzo produces well-made, solid and high-quality instruments at fair and affordable prices.

Customer reviews for "Zabumba 18'' aluminium"
High-quality instruments for Rio Samba and Samba Reggae, which are especially popular and proven in schools! For quite some years now, instrument builder IZZO remains among the top brands of Brazilian Samba percussios. It has been a while that IZZO instruments from São Paulo were rather simple percussion instruments which were very popular in Brazil due to their good price range.
Then they began to constantly increase their standard of Samba instruments until they reached a top-class level. By now they have become a serious manufacturer with a wide range of very well manufactured instruments which are known throughout the international market.
IZZO achieved a special coup when in 2010 they lanced their top brand TIMBRA. TIMBRA instruments were developed in close cooperation with renowned percussionists. The objective was to create convincing series of instruments with great sound, optically outstanding and adecuate for stage gigs. Especially the timbals, made of either wood or aluminium, set new standards with their 16 tuning hooks, extraordinary design and spectacular sound.
Today IZZO is completely in the league of the old-established traditional brands of Samba instruments.
