Atabaxé is a project that brings together the set of rhythms dedicated to the Orishas and emblematic instruments, the three atabaques: rum, rum-pi, lé, and the agogô bell. Finding its origin in the voodoo cults of West Africa, the Candomblé religion emerged in Brazil in the city Salvador da Bahia, within the communities of the enslaved with as main means of expression the percussions and the voice. In Atabaxé the voice will be embodied by copper instruments bringing the other main ingredients of this project, the influences of Afro-Brazilian, Afro jazz and European brass bands, creating a powerful and original alchemy.
