Folkloristic Music

There is a small studio where it is possible to assist performances of local music played with ancient popular instruments. Among the instruments used is the cupa cupa, one of the original instruments created by the folkloristic inventiveness of poor people. It is a tambour that produces a characteristic sound through the friction of a long reed on a membrane, positioned on top of a terracotta or tin pot.
