This collection is the result of long research trips by Carlos Blanco Fadol.

The instruments stand out for their exoticism, authenticity and spectacularity, presenting sizes as diverse as the small barley-stem clarinet from Belarus, up to the gigantic Chinese drum, which reaches almost 4 meters in height, including its structure.
Most of the museum collections in the collection are no longer used in their places of origin, being displaced by new musical trends, or reduced to small groups of musicians.
