Mestre Negoativo offers you a special invitation, a musical journey that begins in Africa and ends in Brazilian lands. He will tell how the Primitive Arch accessed his life as a child and his first actions as a cultural activist in his community. It will show a little of his engagement with artistic languages, cinema, literature and music, his experiences, learning and sharing in quilombola communities.

 

The purpose of the course is to lead the participant to a more attentive and conscious relationship and listening to the sounds that happen around them, and also to the songs and songs that lull and guide our emotions and thoughts. Thus, the intention is to open a wider field of auditory sensitivity, both for beginners in Capoeira and in the relationship with Berimbau, as well as for researchers and admirers of black art and the general public.

 

With this approach, the relationship with music in general and with its Berimbau-de-Barriga will make more sense, perceiving the sonic expressions and nuances, the constitutive elements and the specificities of each touch, rhythm and tradition. You will perceive the intentions and fundamentals of the shared Toques, each Toque of the Berimbau is an access code, activation, “ancestral body”.

 

The Mestre draws the path pointing out paths for a more organic musicality, demonstrating dialogues between the instruments in the formation of the drums, their tunings, as well as historical analyzes and reflections that contribute to awakening the musical ear. The intention is to make each participant get closer and closer to an intuitive musicality, more faithful and consistent with the practice of the old Mestres and Mestres of Saberes Populares.

By completing all the Study Material, you will go from a curious listener to a sound appreciator of life, beauty, art and the organicity of nature and ourselves.

 

  “There is only music because there is silence”.
