Ganza de Maracatu - extra large zinc sheet shaker with hard seed filling, 60 cm tube

Your band or Maracatu group is looking for a shaker with a strong and loud sound? Then you've found the right one! Zinc sheet sounds more rustical than aluminium, and if filled with hard tree seeds this ganza is a powerful instrument! Similar to the Cuban torpedo, you hold the ganza de Maracatu with both hands, each on one end. Rather than shaking simultaneously in one direction, you'd shift the rhythm between both hands, so the movement is against one another. This way of playing you will often find in latin percussion styles like Cumbia or Merengue, but also in the Maracatus. The rhythms is very pushing and causes serious cases of good mood! Of course you can also play the ganza classical, there is no limit to your creativity!

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.
