All berimbau orders will ship in 2 separate containers (1 for the berimbau and baqueta, 1 for the cabaça, caxixi and stone) Tracking information will be emailed to you when items have shipped.
Our Berimbau Viola is hand made in Salvador Bahia, and ships locally from Austin, TX. Each Berimbau verga (stick) is made of Biriba, has been hand sanded and lightly varnished in order to preserve the quality and integrity of the instrument.
The top of the verga has been capped with a thick, circular piece of leather to secure the arame when stringing the berimbau viola. The Cabaça (gourd) has also been hand sanded, lightly varnished, and shaped in order to produce the best quality of sound possible for each gunga, medio, and viola.
Please note that all of our berimbaus are hand made in Salvador, Bahia Brazil and may have varying degrees of imperfections which make each instrument unique.
