|suitable for kids:||yes|
|weight (net):||0,3 kg|
Agogo Bahia, classical small sized 2-bell agogo
Handcrafted by Barravento!
- A handcrafted Bahian style agogô, neatly welded, steel plate polished with coconut oil as protection against rust, giving it a vintage look.
- Its sound is strong and enduring and tuned in a flat third
- In Bahia this kind of agogô is usually played with a thin metal stick.
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.
Customer reviews for "Agogo Bahia, small"(2)
Klingt wunderschön Empfehlung: leichtere Sticks verwenden (leider nicht im Angebot...).
Der Klang ist toll. Wie man ihn aus den brasilianischen Liedern kennt. Die Kinder konnten auch gut damit umgehen.
Die Verarbeitung wirkt rustikal, passt aber gut.
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.
