The baião, a popular folk style originally from northern Brazil, became popular in the 1940s and ’50s. Today, the basic pattern permeates many flavors of Latin-based dance and pop. The development of this style can be traced back to the Afro-Brazilian “lundu” rhythm in the late 1700s. The bass drum plays an infectious, three-note recurring pattern, creating a sloping loop that simply must be danced to. From a technical perspective, it is important to be comfortable playing a multitude of ride patterns that fit nicely over the bass drum pattern. While you can use many snare variations with the baião, here we keep our backbeat on 2 and 4 to focus on the relationship between the ride and bass drum patterns.
