Berimbau Rhythms- Apanha laranja no chao tico tico

Posted on 20 January 2008 by chan

Apanha laranja no chao tico tico

VERBAL ANNOTATION:
TICH TICH DOM DOM DOM DOM, TICH TICH DOM DOM DOM DIM
TICH TICH DIM DIM DIM DIM, TICH TICH DIM DIM DIM DOM

This rhythm can be vastly varied and is very similar to SANTA MARIA in the regional section.
However this is more of an angola toque, and is usually played in street rodas when the capoeiras are busking for money.

When they busk they collect money and then put the money either inside a bandana or just have the money in the middle of the roda. They then battle it out to try and get the money, but can only pick it up with their mouth.

they usually sing this song too:
Apanha laranja no chao tico tico
Se meu amor for si embora eu nao fico
Apanha com a mao ou com pe ou com bico

grab the orange from the ground tico tico (tico is the sound of the berimbau)
if my love went away I will not stay.
Grab it with your hand or your foot or your mouth

here is a video that loosely represents the game courtesy of bantus capoeira, belo horizonte brazil.

    Oi Chan,
    we’ve never met, but I’ve heard good things about capoeira in Adelaide. Tho I met Junior a long time ago, he was a nice guy.

    I just started reading your blog. Good stuff, keep up the good work. Thanks for using our video above. That was recorded at the 15th Anniversary Festival back in 2006.

    thankyou cacapa.
    Thanks for having that video for us to show.
    I have played a bit with gringo here in australia, I really like him, he has a well developed style and attitude. I have visted a couple of groups in belo horizonte, but they were moreso related to mao branca. next time I am in the area I will definately look out for mestre pintor.
    Junior and I had a fall out many years ago unfortunately. But when we were teaching together yes he was a good guy.
    hopefully you will come down to adelaide one day and be able to see for yourself!
