Padre Miguel – So No Apito (1974)


Padre Miguel

There’s a big match on for England fans today. You cannot mention football without reference to batucada. If bossa nova de-emphasised the percussion in samba, batacuda is all about fast repetitive tom-toms, snares and surdos. Grêmio Recreativo Escola de Samba Mocidade Independente de Padre Miguel is one the famous samba schools from Rio de Janeiro. I chose ‘So No Apito’ off their collection Bateria Nota 10 – Vol. 4. because of it abundant use of Cuíca. I love that instrument. Come on England!
