a place where we are trying to build-up an useful database of tools for conga and percussions fans. Basically what we do is searching the web on your behalf and collecting the results here: books, videos, cd's, musical instruments, accessories...
To build a "quality" and not "quantity" database we need your help: review any item you know from those into the store. This is the only way to limit the risk to buy useless stuff!!
The CongaStore doesn't sell items, we only provide you with a list. The button "go shopping" will appears to tell you one of the shops where the item can be ordered on-line.
