DOM DOM NNN
(The NNN is when the pedra or dobrao is pressed against the wire but the vaqueta itself does not hit, it is in the act of pressing the dobrao on the wire that makes a note).
Barravento is the state just before a candomble follower will be taken over by a trance. It is the inbetween state.
The rhythm is not a traditional rhythm, I have only heard one mestre ever play it before, everyone else I have asked had never heard of it being played on the berimbau before.
The guy who introduced this rhythm to me played it a lot faster and better, but this will have to suffice for now until I can get better myself at this rhythm.
