MARACATÚ É TROVÃO - MARACATU IS THUNDER!
There is a big difference between the Maracatus in Pernambuco and Europe:
We are not talking about the religion and the connection with Candomblé. Neither the passion of the drummers and dancers nor the rhythms or the singing.
It is the sound of the drums which makes the big difference!
TREMBLING THUNDER FOR MORE GOOSE PIMPLES
In Recife, if you hear a Maracatu from further away, you'll probably think there is a big thunderstorm coming.
Nana Vasconcelos - Pernambuco´s most famous percussionist - replies when asked about his definition of Maracatu: Maracatu é trovão – Maracatu is thunder!
But where does this association and similarity to a heavy thunderstorm come from?
