    LIMITED EDITION SOCIAL DISTANCING MASK

    $40 for a mask, are you kidding?

    Since this recording is called Social Distancing, we HAD to include a mask! And right now, there is no such thing (really) as a designer mask "for cheap."

    But $40 really is a lot of money to "pay" for a mask, so we sweetened the deal (a little bit).

    In addition to this mask specially designed by Christian Braun, you will also receive the entire album as a high resolution file download.

    But rest assured, this mask will keep you safe (and hip) until we get through this.

    And one thing is for sure - next time you're out and about (safely), people are DEFINITELY going to ask

    "WHERE did you get that mask???"

    :))

    THE JAWBONE OF AN ASS! (a quijada)

    Yes, your very own jawbone of a donkey... signed by Huevito himself.

    This instrument is a prized collector's item.

    Historically, bones have always been used by humans as musical instruments. Probably in Africa first.

    In Latin America, the jaw bone of a donkey is also prevalent in various cultures. But it is only in Peru where the Quijada de Burro truly takes on a virtuosic quality in performance.

    This is a truly limited opportunity as you would need to travel to Peru to actually get one of these!
