Maraca de Prata released!

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!
