Introducing August's new release in my sheet music store: Baião da Bicicleta. Baião is a type of rhythm from Pernambuco in northeast Brazil, which is found in forró, coco, and other genres, and usually uses the zabumba, a type of bass drum with an awesome name.
It was hard to name, but I kept getting images of determined bikers while listening to it, so…Baião da Bicicleta it is!
Below is a short version of this piece that gives an idea of what the head (melody) sounds like.
Baião da Bicicleta is available as a lead sheet (with fully notated bassline, if you like that sort of thing) for $2.99, and the full version, with solos and all, will be appearing on my upcoming album of original Brazilian compositions and arrangements, Florescer, which will be released in October 2018!
Each month I publish one new piece - if you want to stay in the know about new releases, hop on my mailing list at the bottom of this post!
