The Berimbau (pronounced berimbao) is a stringed instrument of African origin. Emblem of Capoeira, the latter would have appeared in Brazil during the colonization by the Portuguese.
Type Gunga or Berra-boi (grave), Medio (medium) or viola (acute), this musical bow is played with a stick and a pebble or dobrão (kind of thick metal piece). It can also be accompanied by a caxixi (bell-shaped basket containing small balls or seeds).
Several toques (rhythms) impose a type of game in the Capoeira round.
The berimbau controls the roda, it is usually held in hand by the master or the most senior.
CapoeiraShop.fr offers different berimbaus to choose according to your desires and / or need. They are all made specifically for the capoeira round, of high quality, and carefully packaged to guarantee you a great satisfaction.
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).
Type Rum (the largest of 3) our atabaques are perfect for roda de Capoeira. For Maculelê, ideally to utliser one of each size.
The pandeiro (tambourine) was brought to Brazil by the Portuguese colonists but its origin dates back to the period when the Moors occupied the Iberian Peninsula. This percussion instrument is therefore of Arab-Andalusian origin.
Composed of a wooden frame, an animal skin (usually goat) and jingles, the pandeiro is one of the most important instruments for the capoeirista (with the berimbau). Bimba himself made his berimbau roda with 1 and 2 pandeiros.
There are pandeiros with a "skin" synthetic but they are rather used by musicians or samba. In capoeira we prefer to use a traditional manufacturing pandeiro with natural elements. The sound is softer (less metal).
That's why all our pandeiros are animal skin and wood frame.
Generally our pandeiros are size 10 inches (25cm approx) for adults or 8 inches (about 20cm) for children. The weight varies depending on the materials used but all perfectly adapted to the "roda" Capoeira.
