So! Finally, a maculele track for y’all. This provided by my good friend and champion backgammon partner, Wulfie (Valeu!!).
This is from Mestre Suassuna, the founder of Associação de Capoeira Cordão de Ouro, who is known for being an advocate of all types of capoeira, whether regional, angola or street capoeira. He has several recorded CDs which reflect this open mindedness on a musical level. The CD that I have has toques (rhythms) de berimbau from angola and regional. It also has roda de samba as it is sometimes played in the context of capoeira (usually after the roda when everyone is drinking beer in my experience).
This track, maculele, starts off with the sound of sticks being struck together (see the maculele tamborzão post earlier). When the atabaque comes in, it’s really easy to hear the connection between maculele and tamborzão.
