“Toque o tambor meu menino, eu quero ver arrepiar, o meu baque é pesado, pra minha mãe Yemanjá…”
It is time to celebrate the end of one more year and the beginning of a new cycle of the percussive group Afojubá Berlin.
In their 4 years of development the group has acquired many members and loved ones, all who are part of this family and who together experience maracatu is what makes it all worth it, so we invite everyone; members and guests, to unite and share this tribal essence, which accelerates our hearts, dance, sing and let time run without thinking.
The night takes place with several attractions and special participations.
Symbiosis of various instruments of music and pressure: an Afro-Brazilian Press Orchestra! Rhythmic and technical fundamentals of different instruments (conga, igloo, clave, AGB, etc.).
The repertoire goes from Samba, Maracatu and Coco to the religious rhythms of Candomblé, often accompanied by singing.
The Afojubá Batuque percussion group, which has existed since 2014, reflects the cultural diversity of Berlin through the different nationalities of its members. This diversity is also evident on a musical level; João Alencar do Rego, regent of the group, mixes the traditional rhythms of the Brazilian Northeast with modern rhythms and combine them with different musical influences of the member countries. This creates a dynamic repertoire of music, dance and music.
Sambada de Coco is a musical group of Brazilians who currently live in Berlin created by percussionist João Alencar. Joao from Olinda (Pernambuco) has been living in the German capital since 2012 and this year he started this project with the idea of inviting percussionist friends to play the various songs of Coco (traditional music of the Afro-Indian culture).
