Caixa de Maracatu 12'' -  traditional string tuning system

The shell is made of ca. 10 mm thick, laminated wood. The wood is veneered on its in- and outside. The shell produces a nice and full sound as it is built without any metal hardware which might affect the vibration of the shell. On the lower third of the body, a reinforcement ring is installed, covered almost completely by the tension hoop. The tension hoops are made of solid wood with a hight of approx. 46 mm and 15 mm thick. The snare wires has a good and even contact to the resonance head due to two notches on the resonance side of the snaredrum (snarebed). The wires can't be lifted.
An exceptional drum in all aspects of optical appearance and sound quality!

Brand description "Barravento"

barravento

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.
