Capoeira Regional Rhythms- Iuna

Posted on 31 December 2007 by chan

The berimbau Rhythm-Iuna
This Rhythm has been explained to me in many different ways by many teachers, and with various meanings.However, I am just going to say that in capoeira regional (in angola it is different), they use this for the jogo dos mestres e professores. They usually accompany this rhythm with The cintura desprezada, or some call it the balanca durada. Which is the advanced sequences mestre bimba taught.they usually just play it on one berimbau and no other instruments are played.

VERBAL ANNOTATION:
TICH DOM NNN DOM NNN DOM NNN DOM
TICH DOM NNN DOM NNN DOM DOM
TICH DOM NNN DOM NNN DOM NNN DOM DOM DOM DOM DOM NNN DOM NNN DOM
TICH DOM NNN DOM NNN DOM NNN DOM DOM DOM DOM DOM
TICH DOM NNN DOM NNN DOM NNN DOM DOM DOM DOM DOM NNN DOM NNN DOM

just remember the moving on and off of the gourd from the stomach is very important. It is crucial that you try and get the timing of this otherwise it will not sound the same.

    Hello,
    Is it me or your verbal annotation doesn’t match the toque you play in the video?

    I guess “NNN” is the sound done when you hit the arame with the dobrão right after a “DOM” sound, isn’t it? Then, in your video at around 0:14, you play “DOM NNN DOM NNN DOM NNN DOM NNN DOM NNN”. There is no such pattern in the verbal annotation.
    Could you re-check the verbal annotation? It would be helpful to learn this toque. Thanks!

    Your videos are quite helpful, thanks for sharing!
