(Just one moment)

Berimbau (Baden Powell & Vinicius de Moraes)

This has been always an amazing song for me. Lots of emotions since I’ve learned it, directly from the master Baden Powell, via his recordings. Believe me or not, I believe I’ve started Capoeira because of it.

Today I’m honored. Berimbau is released and you can listen below. Even more, as I had the pleasure to share the emotions together with Jana Crivelli, a fantastic Capoeira teacher and musician, who played the “Curimba” (the name we give to the group of percussion instruments, when used into Afro-Brazilian rhythms).

You will notice a complex tempo, varying frmo 6/8 and 2/4 in the guitar, while the Curimba keeps the 6/8 playing a rhythm called Congo de Ouro.

I hope you enjoy!
