Blocos Afro - an Ebook for Afro Samba & Samba Reggae aficionados - Download
Ebook language: English
A book loaded with information about history, origins of Afro-Brazilian music styles, blocos, sound sambles including sound samples and written music.
The music of the Blocos Afro has become so popular over the past decades, their rhythms inspire not only Samba groups and but also influence professional musicians and bands around the world. Little literature is available, and certainly no transcriptions, as the rhythms are usually passed on orally within the bands.
Matthias Haffner and Michael de Miranda have managed to extract the essence of the Blocos Afro and put this information together in a book. In this download version, you will get pdf files with the content of the book, the music and the photos of the author’s travels to Salvador da Bahia in Brazil. The Ebook includes soundfiles for rhythms of each Bloco Afro, listed by instrument. If you are looking to educate yourself about the backgrounds of the north-east Brazilian afro-blocos, this Ebook is a great way to get a broad overview. Being experienced professional musicians in mainly Latin music genres, the authors have captured many almost invisible connections between the many Caribbean styles, amongst others, and the Brazilian influences.
Introduction with chapters about African and Caribbean influences, Bloco de índio, Axé music, Candomblé ritual drumming and political backgrounds.

Customer reviews for "Blocos Afro - Ebook Download"
Two guys living in Berlin and Lisbon discover their love for percussion and pandeiros. Both are professional musicians. Both are gifted craftsmen.
Anders Perander is a luthier and also builds cavaquinhos. Matthias Haffner studied Latin American percussion and World Music at the Rotterdam World Music academy, his craft work is highly skilled and mainly self-taught.
In every way ideal preconditions!
Delevoping their own series of top-class pandeiros seemed like an experiment in the beginning. When they met in Rotterdam and realised that they shared the great passion for the little frame instrument, they decided to start a project. From a very successful first experiment of making jingles for pandeiros, soon the idea was born to set up a small business and make first class jingles for all sorts of sound styles. Of course, it didn’t take long for the idea to come up about not only making jingles but the complete instrument.
It became reality.
They faced a lot of difficulties but also a lot of fun, while working and developing their first pandeiro series. The outcome of their creative path is simply amazing. They believe in learning the hard way, by committing all necessary mistakes in order to come out with a more profound understanding of what they were doing and why.
Only the highest quality fits in their concept.
