Today, Maraca de Prata is released. Song from Mestre Humberto de Maracanã, and the style is known as Boi Bumbá, Boi, Boi do Maranhão or Bumba Meu Boi.
You can see below the video we made together with Mestre Boca Rica, the one who came with the suggestion to me.
What a journey to reach the final song. This is a very interesting one as it is polyrhythmic style and instruments are playing in binary and ternary forms. We could say 2/4 and 3/4, or 2/4 and 6/8 and so on. In the guitar, bass line are played in 3 and the treble notes are played in 2. Pretty cool I must say!
Coroa de Ouro is now available in the digital platform of your choice. Spotify, Tidal, Apple Music, Deezer, Amazon, YouTube, you choose! I must say that I’m quite impressed with the quality of service that Amuse (www.amuse.io) provides. Outstanding!
I’ve truly enjoyed recording this song! With two guitars, cajon and cuíca, I believe it is the first ever recording of this public domain tune from Brazil.
