Customer reviews for "Xequere Biano Pajeú No 11"
His first contact with the agbê (- the name for a xequeré in Pernambuco), Biano Pajeú had back in 2002 when he met a percussion group which played Maracatu in Recife. He joined the group as a student and a teacher for playing and dancing with the xequeré. However, he was dissatisfied with the quality of the agbês, so he began his very own project in search of the ideal instrument. His efforts reach back to the year he first got in touch with this instrument. Biano is a musician himself and has a strong connection to his music and shekerés in particular, which helps him understand the needs of other shekeré players. His curiosity has opened doors to many new techniques which has led to his agbês being a lot more than just an instrument. For a while, life took him on different paths and he stopped his instrument making. By the end of 2017, he finally decided to quit his job and dedicate himself exclusively to what he most felt passionate about. "In the end, you only have one life" he says about his decision. Since 2018 he teaches playing and dancing with the xequeré.
