This 55 minute collection of inspiring percussion music features the sounds of the Brazilian Bateria (collection of drums). We use 3 or more richly tuned bass drums (surdos), caxia (snare drum), agogo (double African bell), tamborim (small stick drum, no jingles), ganza (tube shaker), repinique ( high pitched drum that gives signals), and congas to create a vibrant weave of good feelings.
The 15 grooves cover a wide range of musical styles – some original composition and some innovative arrangements of traditional pieces from West Africa, Cuba and Brazil.
This album is excellent for letting go into the groove and dancing at home, adding your own guitar, voice or keyboard parts or using as a base for hand drum improvisation.
Core members in this recording have studied and played these arrangements with director Kim Atkinson for more than 10 years!
