Make your alfaia rumble! Hardwood sticks for Maracatu on hide heads

A set of authentic Maracatu sticks typically has one thicker and one thinner stick: the baqueta and the bacalhão (lit. codfish).

- both sticks are slightly curved to an anatomical and comfy to hold shape
- slightly roughened, strong hard wood produces the typical attack on the alfaia

Please note:
The sticks are not produced industrially but are handmade by a small workshop. The colour of the wood might be different from our product photo and the finish of the sticks is roughened and haptical.

Gutes Produkt hält was es verspricht

26 Jan 2016

das scheint sehr auf die schnelle gezimmert und bei den drei paar passen keine hölzer paarweise gut zusammen

Answer by Kalango

Die Maracatu Sticks sind in der Tat handgedrechselt und im Finish nicht vergleichbar mit unserer Alternative von Durastick. Genau mit sowas wird eben Maracatu in Brasilien gespielt und deshalb bieten wir die auch hier an.

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.
