Eduardo taught himself the art of Jaw Harp forging and what we can say for sure: he has great talent! Eduardo, who has his workshop near São Paulo, wants to revive the lost Jaw Harp art, which was once cultivated by West African slaves. He does not tie up to conservative traditions, but looks around the world and gets inspired. Eduardo has succeeded in creating a particularly innovative and versatile Trompa Viola, which can be compared to a good or very good Khomus. The variety of playing possibilities is impressive. So the slow-meditative playing is as much fun as the dynamic-rhythmic one. The sound of the Trompa Viola remains clearly defined, whether you play softly or powerfully and loudly. Also the very good workmanship of this Berimbao de Boca, as the Jaw Harps are called in Brazil, is worth mentioning. Shiny and smoothly polished, it lies very well in the hand. Its stable frame is insensitive to pressure, which makes it not jingling and also suitable for beginners. Visually, the Trompa Viola looks like a stringed instrument. You can let your imagination run wild and see a violin, guitar or bass in its curved shape.
Beautiful and extravagant in its design, as well as in its Sound!
