Afoxe Rendition with Blocks

Uploaded .

“Afoxe” is a rhythm played by carnival groups from Bahia in Northeastern Brazil. It is named after an instrument that is traditionally used to play this pattern: an afoxe is a beaded gourd; aka “shekere”. In this rendition, I replaced the shaker parts with Chinese blocks.

A traditional, carnival-type performance of Afoxe can be heard here.

4/4 200bpm
