Capoeira Regional Rhythms- Santa Maria

Posted on 20 January 2008 by chan

Santa Maria

This rhythm is the ‘hino’ de capoeira, the anthem of capoeira. In the associacao de capoeira mestre bimba, bahia brazil, we play this anthem before every class to pay homage to the mestres of the past, and of course mestre bimba. There are many variations that can be added, but it is generally played with a different timing than that of Apanha laranja no chao tico tico.

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

    Hey, Chan! I just realized that your Santa Maria is actually different from the one I know, which only has four notes between each “tich tich”, and the last set goes “dim dom dim dom”. I suppose it’s mostly just what you said about different timing though.

    hey Joaninha,
    Santa maria varies a lot. There is footage on youtube of mestre bimba playing it, and you will see what I mean. This is the way I have intepreted it over the years, from seeing different people play. The timing is the main difference between this rhythm and that of punha laranja no chao tico tico.
    thanks!
