Barbatuques, a well-known Brazilian group of body percussionists, adapted "BaianaÌ" back in 2005 (first released on the "O Seguinte EÌ Esse" album) and since then it became a staple of their concerts
The original is a modern folk song from Bahia composed by Maria do Carmo Barbosa, but it was the mouth harp sound and the stomping beat on the Barbatuques' arrangement that imprinted its trademark sound. A couple of years ago, Jan Schulte, the german producer known for his taste for tropical drums (and also for using a few different aliases), heard the song and decided to add an extra punch to it for his DJ sets: more drums, taken from a library record of "drumdrops" (hence the title).
Now for the first time "BaianaÌ" is issued on vinyl. It marks the second volume of the Brasingles eries, a new series on Selva Discos dedicated to releasing loud 12" singles with the original song on the A side and a rework on the B side, to please both the DJ and the listener.
