Toques de Atabaque para Umbanda e Candonblé

Postby godskin » Tue Jun 10, 2014 9:59 am

I found this video of a master atabaque player demonstrating some of the most used rhythms in umbanda.
For about a year these are the rhythms I am also studying and playing during our rituals.
I am no where close to the level performed in this video but its realy inspirational to me to hear where more pracise can lead to.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

The riffing he does with double-time slaps is really cool!
The technique, especially his left hand looks painful!
