Christmas Comes Early in the Masamba Camp!

We got a parcel yesterday of treats from our good friends in Contemporanea Instrumentos Musicais!

Contemporanea have been sponsoring Masamba’s projects for a number of years now, and have always been very generous with their time, with their expert advice, and with their instruments. We all know how hard the recent recession has been, but it’s a great asset to us, not having to worry about where our instruments are coming from.

In this batch, we received some luxury surdo straps, some four tone agogos, a custom built repinique and a really awesome 14″ x 90cm Timba with a lot of tuning lugs!

Also, they threw in a batch of drumskins, customised with our band logo, which always look amazing, and have been commented on by almost every other band we’ve worked with.

We are deeply grateful to Contemporanea for all their support, and also to Soar Valley Music,  their local distributor for facilitating the delivery.
