Samba Batucada composed by Jorg Franke. Edited by Sponsel. For 7 Percussion. Sheet Music. Published by Zimmermann (PE.ZM32170).

The 7 players for which this piece was arranged have to use the following instruments: ganza (shaker) , Caxixi, Caixa (snare drum) , vibraslap, agogo-bell, reco- reco, cuica, tamborim, repenique 10" or 12" (Tom-Tom) , apito (whistle) , triangle, surdo 18" or 20" (Tom-Tom or bass drum) and surdo 20" or 22" (bass drum). Tempo can be adapted to the players' skills. The note values and phrasing should be perfomed in a relaxed, easygoing manner, i. e. not mathematically exact in the classic style so as to meet the character of Brazilian music. The piece follows traditional playing models in terms of style which also applies to its three- movement structure (fast/slow, calm/very fast). These alterations in tempo have to be followed in any case. Surdos and repenique play a central part. As its predecessor, African Moods (ZM 32140) , this work is also well-suited for percussion ensembles at music schools.
