Papete portrait Percussionist Jose de Ribamar Viana, aka Papete, recorded a series of albums with expansive new interpretations of the Afro-Brazlian batucada percussion style. Here's a quick look at his work...


Papete "Berimbau E Percussao" (Discos Marcus Pereira, 1975)
Interesting album... The forro flavored opening track is a little too manic, and some tracks are a little spacy, there's also some sly percussion and rhythmic action throughout the disc. In particular, this has some of the most creative and effective berimbau playing that I've ever heard... Worth tracking down if you're looking for something off the beaten track.
