Far, far away from the coast, where he first flourished in the hands of slaves, the coco-de-roda reached the backwoods of Pernambuco. Honed for the trip, the pace and incorporated elements of indigenous traditions evidence hinterland, but managed to keep the syncopated tap dance and environment that characterize the coastal version. Samba de Coco Raízes de Arcoverde became the great exponent of this new-style rhythm, which is expressed in letters plain, hit and striking melodies squeaky timbre.
The Group
Initiated by Lula Calixto, a staunch defender of popular culture hinterland, the saga of  Coco Raízes represents the people's attachment to the traditions and unconscionable effort to preserve them. But it's also a story of love between two families that came together around the rhythm. In the hands of Gomez and Calixto, coco is not just a beat of a tambourine or dance, is a covenant, a way of life. Cousins, uncles, parents and children, all siblings are at the time of the samba.
Blessed are those invited to the grand celebration of the coco. At Alto do Cruzeiro, where the head office of the group is still time to celebrate. Just get a visitor reception is a warm gun. Everything starts with a bounce shy troupe, which infects the hypnotic drum Biu Neguinho and culminates with the opening of the runway to the tune singers and dancers showy.
Every day, Coco Raízes seduces more fans. People are hungry for praise by popular culture, who enjoy the simplicity and authenticity of the group. Since the recording of a track on a compilation of Pernambuco in Concert, Coco took off and began to perform various shows in Recife, all prestigious by a large audience that was formed in the capital. The two CDs - Cóco de Raizes do Arcoverde and Godê Pavão - recorded to date testify to the relentless wind of the caravan, which has not stopped or will not stop.
Even with the founder's death in 1999, the group continued their journey. The group's headquarters is the home of Lula Calixto, and also a small museum with his name. As one big family, the group consists of uncles, cousins, parents and children. Currently, who commands the coco are Seu Damião and Seu Assis.
Coco Raízes de Arcoverde is back. Three years after the recording of her debut album, the group has a new job ready to be put on the market. The CD - titled Godê Pavão "Gode Peacock" - brings 15 new compositions, all of its own members, uniting elements of indigenous people and poetry Xucuru hinterland.
The new album is a tribute to one of the oldest coco players Neguinho Biu, 72, dedicated to the pace for more than five decades. He is one of the only group to have participated in the early stage of the coco, when building a house, the owner invited family and friends to dance on the ground in order to settle the clay. Seu Biu, as he is known in Arcoverde, who has been director of the samba school of the United Avenue in the 70s, is responsible for the beat of the deaf that is special to mark the rhythm.
