Large agogo Bahia with with rustic finish, strong sound, long sustain, classic 2-bell agogo
Artisan-made by Barravento

  • Handcrafted agogo
  • Rustic look and finish
  • The steel is treated with coconut oil to protect it from moisture, giving the instrument a rustic appearance
  • Powerful, unmuffled, deep tone with a long sustain and in minor thirds tuning
  • In Bahia, this agogo is typically played with a thin metal stick (a triangle stick, a reco reco stick or even an old fork will work well). Of course, a normal wood stick also works perfectly.
  • You can click the bells together when playing


Sizes:
small bell: 14 x 5,5 cm
large bell 16 x 6 cm

Good to know:
In Brazil it is not common to tune agogos to certain tones or even to matching intervals, dissonance and individuality are therefore part of this instrument. This allows each agogo to sound slightly different, even if the model is the same.

THE brand for authentic, hand made Maracatu instruments from Pernambuco!

Barravento is the leading producer of hand-made Maracatu instruments in Brazil. Their instruments are played in traditional Maracatu groups as well as in modern formations such as Nação Zumbi or in the bands of famous MPB celebrities.

In his workshop, Maureliano Ribeiro builds small series of very special instruments in traditional craftsmanship together with his team and with lots of attention to detail:
Alfaias, caixas, gongues, agogôs, shekerés, ilus and mineiros, all of which have excellent sound quality.

This art is of course also based on Maurelianos experience as a musician and his profound knowledge about the Afro-Brazilian culture of Pernambuco. Maureliano, the head of Barravento, is a musician himself. He used to be active in the Mangue Beat movement, he has been a capoeirista for many years as well as a drummer and director of various Maracatu groups. He also practices the pernambucan stick combat-dance, which is very similar to Capoeira.



Furthermore, Maureliano Ribeiro is a tireless researcher of Pernambucos extremely rich folk culture. In small plantings, Maureliano grows different trees and bottle gourds so that in the future he will be able to provide a part of his raw materials sustainably by himself. Barravento supports a programme which helps former drug addicts with their social rehabilitation.
