20'' zabumba - for traditional Forró and north-east Brazilian dance nights!

A zabumba must not be missing in any Forró-, Baião-, Xote- or Xaxado ensemble. It gives the pulse and pushes everyone to dance with its syncopated beats. Even if you're not into dancing much, a good zabumba player - together with accordeon, triangel and vocals - will make you take your shoes off! Zabumbas are played with a soft and short mallet on the superior head equipped with a nappa head for very soft and warm attack. To produce the typical contrast, the contrarhythms on the other side of the zabumba are played with a thin switch on a nylon head. Za-bum-ba, that's how it sounds!

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.
