‘We are quilombolas, we are resistance, we seek Zumbi in Pixinguinha’



We are because many came before us!

In the middle of an impenetrable organization called Angola Janga, known as Quilombo dos Palmares, the quilombola leader, Zumbi dos Palmares, appears! He became a warrior in a practically secret society that lasted for almost a century, during the Brazilian colonial period, located in Serra da Barriga, between Alagoas and Pernambuco.

Killed on November 20, 1695, according to the records of our colonizers, Zumbi, in fact, lives in us! Lives in every black skin and in every musical arrangement that is organized, because music is also resistance!

Music is a sacred institution and even if they try to whiten Choro, it is in it that we find the protagonism of black figures, such as that of Anacleto de Medeiros and the maestro Pixinguinha, who was born in the late 19th century, in the post-abolition year, in 1897. With his dark skin, he leaves his mark and builds a black musicality that Afro-references us.

In his sonority, divine, graceful and majestic, “Pizindim” impressed Africa in its maxixed crying, brought the sacred rhythm of Iansã, the orixá of the winds and, with that, marked the agueré crucifixes in its keys. He presented the Brazilian people with a black and syncretic rhythm that shows life and resistance, even with all the social structure that marginalizes dark skin.

We are quilombolas, we are resistance, we search for Zumbi at Maestro Pixinguinha and this combination gave rise to this video, with the song Dando Topada, a composition by Pixinguinha, which has its first record in 1957.

Enjoy this gherkin, commanded by these black potentialities: the Carioca of the Trio Júlio – Magno Júlio in the reco-reco, Marlon Júlio in the guitar and Maycon Júlio in the mandolin. With them are Henrique Araújo (cavaquinho), Xeina Barros (atabaques), Bira Nascimento (flute), Allan Abbadia (bombardino) and Tiganá Macedo (agogô).

Black treasures in Choro, to revere resistance and celebrate the Africa that exists in us!

Thanks Zumbi!

Thank you, Pixinguinha!
