Don't know what Candomblé (Cabula for that matter) is ... but [assuming you were the guy I think you are in the clip] sure looked like you were having fun for sure and it sounded great!

Educate me and take my response as positive .. was meant to be!

RitmoBoricua, the two guys in the first video you posted are possibly the two best atabaques players in Brazil. They are Dofono de Omolu ( on the left, and also soloing on the video I posted), that man taught me everything I know and Ney de Oxosse on the right. I play with those guys all the time in the ceremonies. They are amazing! This video doesn't do them justice.
Here they play Barravento.
If you type either of their names in youtube you will find much more...

Brazilian rhythms I could tell them players
on the video had it going on. Thanks for
the info.

Hi Burke,

The cabula rhythm is one of the three main rhythms of Candomblé de Angola (one of many completely different nations or styles).
It is a sacred rhythm from the Bantu people.
It is one the funnest rhythms to play I know. As you may have noticed, it is the rhythm that Samba has been derived from. The high drum plays the surdo pattern, the middle drums plays something very similar to the partido alto and the bass drum...well it plays everything and more...
It is extremely difficult to play well, people have been at it for at least 500 years or more.

Great stuff, Tone. It just amazing all the rhythms
that came from Mother Africa and the way they
were adapted in the Americas. The River Is Very
Deep And Rich, Indeed!
