With feet firmly in tradition and minds traveling for innovation, they are outgoing, irreverent and facing the Brazilian popular imagination. The Tea Zabumba, band founded four years ago, with the second CD is warm, distributed by the DI Label Trama. With 13 tracks (twelve songs + a remix), The new CD shows called "forró with attitude", with which the band reinvents the way you do forró. And what is forró with attitude? It is a forró energetic, exciting, rich performances, which makes a link between innovation and tradition, being true to the sound of traditional forró inherited from Luiz Gonzaga, Jakson's Tambourine and other big names.


The CD titled "Pra Sambar one forró" not just to say that samba is welcome to forró, as some songs reveal. This title is rather a hint of subversion in the genre made famous by Luiz Gonzaga, as the sound, the lyrics and interpretation are entitled to the slogan - "forró with attitude" - adopted by the band Zabumba tea.

Admittedly the topics covered on the CD are those that mankind has always elected. But when it comes to love, for example, the letters print a new tone. A good example is "Clarisse & Milena" (track 8), one xote whose fluent and serene melody, verses wander quietly loving, bringing to the surface a subject that was taboo until then, because the letters of forró, a novel or great friendship between people of the same sex has always been the target of gaze prejudiced. As for the sound aspect, the Tea Zabumba now launches a CD forró that makes deliberate use of electronic resources, but with such balance and consistency with the speech literary-musical sounds pretty good to the ears. The electronic sounds are not just added to the contrary, the sound effects emanating from the songs themselves.

The new sound of the CD is also endorsed by the participation of good musicians like Antonio Barreto (xylophone), Fred Andrade (guitar and viola 12 c.), Philip Johnson (violin), Marco César (mandolin), among others. The "Terreiro Tea" (track 9), with almost ten minutes in length, brings a potpourri of traditional coconut Paraíba recorded by lyricist Climério de Oliveira (Climate), except the first and last verses, which he created. This session, whose first verse is very well played by Silverio, leads other cameos: Aurinha of Coco, Josildo Sá, Valdir Santos, Kleber Magrão (Cascabulho), Cocoa Arcoverde his Michael Joseph (father Climate). Already the band's eponymous song (f. 10) - which also announces its way forrozar - proposes an intense life, a life whose resonance echoes "the beat of the bass drum." The last track (13), is a remix of the track 3, "Anthony, John and Peter," prepared by the talented Chico Correa (Electronic & Band). All this is great for those who want to enjoy forró with attitude and "Pra Sambar one forró" in the yard of tea Zabumba.

googlr translation... Ho Ho : )
A zabumba is a type of bass drum used in Brazilian music. The player wears the drum while standing up and uses both hands while playing.

The zabumba ((Portuguese pronunciation: [za'bũbɐ]) generally ranges in diameter from 16 to 22 inches, and is 5 to 8 inches tall. The shell is made of wood and may utilize either skin or plastic drum heads and is usually tensioned via metal lugs and tension rods. The top head is usually muted with tape or cloth strip(s) and struck with a cloth-covered mallet (held in the right hand) to produce a low fundamental note with minimal overtones. The bottom head is tuned tighter and is struck with a thin, twig-like stick called a bacalhão which is held in the left hand to produce a high fundamental with a sharp attack and numerous overtones.
In construction, tuning and performance technique, the zabumba is very similar to bass drums found in the eastern Mediterranean region, such as the davul.

The zabumba is used in the genres of forró, coco, baião, xaxado and xote.
