Semillas del ritmo cubano: Musical Instruments Exhibition.
Many instruments are built in Cuba with materials that come from Nature.For example, the maracas, the güiro and the claves. They all are pure Nature!
A lot of wood is needed to build a guitar or a Cuban tres, as well as for making a
tumbadora or bongo drum. Besides, these instruments need a piece of leather to sound properly.
There are also instruments made of metal, for example a bell
or a cowbell.
In this miniature exhibition, Papá Montero, a Finnish musician, investigator and a great cuban music promoter in Finland, shares some of the Cuban instruments from his collection.
