Subject

Capoeira

Description

The berimbau is an African instrument that leads the batería in capoeira. It is considered a percussion instrument and consists of a wooden bow called verga (made from the wood of the beriba tree), a single metal string called arame, a hollow gourd called a cabaça, a stone or coin called a dobrão, a thin stick called baqueta and a small shaker called a caxixi. The style of capoeira being played dictates the number, arrangement, and rhythms of berimbaus in the batería.
