The Batyconga Set:

 

Euro represents a unique and original sound from an authentic instrument called Batyconga. The Batyconga is a hybrid set that merged drums with various percussion instruments such as the Congas, Djembe, Cow Bell, Bongo, Cajon, among other accessories, that creates rhythms with innovative sounds, resulting in a wealth of rhythmic base as they could create several drummers playing simultaneously.
