It is said that Atabaque is the heart of the roda. This instrument of African or Arab origin, looks like a long drum, cone-shaped, which often poses (not always) on one foot to stabilize it. Its manufacture is almost identical to that of a barrel on which are added a rawhide stretched using strapping iron and a rope. The wooden blocks used to refine the sound more or less holding the skin.
It is used in capoeira but in maculelê and Candomblé (Brazilian religious ritual).
There are 3 sizes of atabaques: Rum (The larger with a bigger sound), Rum-Pi (average size) and Le (The smallest with its most acute).
