A big thank you for the berimbaus

A few months have passed since we successfully crowd funded some berimbaus for the group.

Unfortunately, just as I picked them up from Instrutor Lua in Cheltenham, my wrist started playing up, so I've not been able to string them. Finally though, my wrist was good enough (just) to get the berimbaus out and teach Au how to string hers.

A big thank you to everyone who shared our crowdfunding page, donated money and fundraised for them! Here they are:

As my wrist improves, I'm looking forward to more percussion time in class. The next project after our festival is an atabaque... : )
