Removed link cause it refers to a shop, the other too but i did not find other sources and I left it. Do you think you should remove it? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:48, 11 September 2010 (UTC)


Removed the reference to maracatu as the tamborim is never used in maracatu. Mona-Lynn 14:40, 21 Feb 2005 (UTC)

I have never seen or heard tamborins in Maracatu, but I've read about it, so I added it, but I'm not really sure.

What is virado? I thought the turning of the tamborim while playing samba is called 'cajatera'; just curious. Thanks, Stuart

I believe "virado" means "turned around", as in maracatu de baque virado ("maracatu of the turned-around beat").
