The coco de roda is not just a dance but also the entertainment that sets the rhythm for the evenings in the fishing villages of Pernambuco in the North-East of Brazil. Dona Selma is considered to be one of the greatest singers of the genre; here she enlivens a July evening on the beach at Olinda.
Recording in the field: Nicodème de Renesse
Selma Ferreira da Silva, Selma do Coco, a singer, songwriter of the coco de roda, was born in Vitória de Santo Antão - PE in 1935. The first contacts with the coco comes from childhood when she sang and danced at parties organized by her family.

Settled in Olinda - PE in 1955, where she lived until 1994 from the trade, until in 1995 she recorded her first album. In 1998 she recorded "Minha História", which earned her the Sharp prize. Today she is the best known representative of the coco, the rhythm coming from the interior of Alagoas, probably Quilombo dos Palmares, where it mingled with the music of the Indians and African slaves in colonial times.

Dancing Coco remains the expression of popular outburst of the soul, of the people who suffered the most from northeastern Brazil.
DONA SELMA DO COCO - One of the exponents of the coco de roda rhythm typically in Pernambuco, Mrs. Selma began to dicover her artistic talents in the Upper City of Olinda, with a tray of tapioca. The music at the time, was a way to attract customers and draw attention of tourists while  selling food and drink in front of her house. In 1996 the Queen of Coco, as she also known, was one of the attractions of the Abril Pro Rock festival stood out on stage in full effervescence of Mangue Beat. A year after her song "Rolinha" present on the album "Minha História" was one of the most performed songs during the carnival. Dona Selma has defended the colors of Pernambuco in several countries in Europe and her work represents the state in many international compilations.
Today the coco is ever present in the festivities of our people. Selma and many other traditional conquests are examples of the resistance and strength of an authentic and original manifestation. This contagious rhythm has influenced numerous popular composers through the ages, and even contemporary Pernambuco music . The famous Jackson do Pandeiro influenced Chico Science, Alceu Valença and many other local musicians who have consistently searched for this playful aspect in the creation of their work. 

Gracias Lemmy for the music :)
