Mahasound is the duet of Ambar and Alfredo Limantour, performing unique Pre-Columbian music using natural rhythmic cycles for dancing, and relaxation. Mahasound's centerpiece drums were crafted in the ancient Aztec tradition by Don Maximino Ibarra, who received his gift as a drum-maker on the slopes of Popocatepetl. The drums are considered sacred and are called the "abuelos" or grandparents. Mahasound's beautiful collection of more than 50 replica instruments are carved with serpents and other Nahuatl symbols, days from the sacred calendar Tonalpohualli, and Aztec Gods. Ambar and Alfredo believe in the power of sound to improve peopleĀ“s lives. Journey to ancient Mexico with Mahasound.
