About Workshops

Support in Kind

MaSamba is proud to use only the highest-quality instruments in our workshops and performances.

Unlike many other ‘samba’ groups, all of our instruments are sourced from Brasil, in sone cases directly from the factories and workshops where they are produced.

We are proud to have the support of the following companies who support our work through the provision of instruments, accessories and advice:

  • Contemporanea Instrumentos Musicais – Brasil’s premier producer of samba percussion instruments, based in downtown Sao Paulo.

  • Hardcase - Hardcase produce the best quality protection for any drum, large or small. Masamba partnered with Hardcase to make a series of cases specifically tailored to fit samba instruments such as surdos and timbals.

  • Liverpool Drumsticks - based in Santa Catarina, Brasil, Liverpool produce specialist sticks and beaters for the samba community, as well as a wide range of 'mainstream' drumsticks.



We are proud to have developed positive links with some of the leading percussionists and drumming groups around the world
