Soon online: many new designs, colours and instruments fresh from Brazil - Samba Percussion, Samba guitars, producer news and new ideas - what's new this season, on which festivals can you meet us, and why is it that a wood guitar maker all the sudden builds the perfect Samba drums?
Finally some sun and maybe a summer soon.. - time for some Samba news!
Check out our spring-/summer updates for you!
- Gope is coming up with quite a few interesting and new products in their assortment, amongst others pandeiros, rebolos, timbals, agogos and many more - online in june!
- Rozini: For those of you who love Brazilian traditional music and for the aficionados of sting instruments - we are getting a new 7-string guitar (violão de 7 cordas) by Rozini in which we will present shortly.
- Ivsom: New rio beater (mallets) for marcação surdos and surdo de terceira in many different colours, and finally and after having so many of you ask for - also in black! ;)
- Rozini percussão: What does a company do, who has extremely successfully built wooden string instruments for many decades and has specialised in top-class production - exactly: they build more instruments of wood! We are really excited about their new percussion line! Rozini is an old-established and traditional luthier company who has managed to transfer its very special relation to wood to another kind of instruments - and we are so looking forward to this: Rozini percussion soon online in our shop!
- Kalango at festivals: let the party begin - and we'll be right in the middle of it! At the following festivals you can come and see us at our mobile stall with Samba instruments and accessories - come and visit, ask us what you always wanted to know about Samba and try something new!
