Peter + atabaque

Peter Groenendijk, PhD researcher in Forest Ecology and Forest Management

‘I always loved drumming'
Take a good look. This is the first ever Dutch-made atabaque. Well, Dutch-Brazilian in a way. Until he was 15, Peter Groenendijk lived in the land of Capoeira - the martial art performed to the rousing rhythms of the berimbau, the pandeiro and... the atabaque. Twenty pinewood planks tied together like a wine barrel in Dad's shed. A great hobby. And now: let rip!
