“Experience the Heartbeat of Brazil: Traditional Instruments Handcrafted with Passion”

We at Opanije’s Shop are getting our merchandise directly from master craftsmen who have learned the traditional construction methods for the Afro-Diasporic percussive instruments.

Each piece is handcrafted with passion and skill, drawing from the deep cultural heritage of Afro-Brazilian tradition, using materials native to Brazilian soil, extracted through environmental and humane work vetted sources.

From shakers and rattles to drums and bells, every instrument is imbued with the vibrant energy of Brazilian music and culture. Whether for a professional musician or just a casual appreciator of music, if what you’re looking for are unique hand made instruments, we got something for you!
