Sergio Assad: Suite Brasileira No. 3
Suite Brasileira No. 3
Sergio Assad (1952 - … )
The Suite Brasileira No. 3 blend forms of cultural expression of a specific region of Brazil. the Northeast, involving part of the state of Bahia, the great state of Pernambuco and some of Alagoas and Rio Grande do Norte. In the process of choosing the dances or traditional forms to compose this painting I came across the curious fact that among all the forms of expression of this region there were five starting with the letter C. It left me then no doubt in choosing these five.
Cantoria Nordestina it is an oral expression of music that is practiced in northeastern Brazil involving folkloric manifestations and the Cordel literature.
Capoeira is a mixture ofdance and martial art that originated during the slavery period in Brazil and is very associated with the state of Bahia.
Coco is one of the strong rhythms from the Northeast and typically part of the set of Cantorias once it is almost always accompanied by lyrics. Cantiga do Sertao is a form of song which uses the northeastern scale (with augmented fourth) to build up its melody. Caboclinhos is a dance of fast movements with its origins on folkloric manifestations from the state of Pernambuco.(ISBN 9782895037095)
