Marcha is related to frevo with added syncopation and typically at a slightly slower tempo. Although heard in Pernambuco, it was also used in Carnival in Rio de Janeiro in the past, and can still be heard in dance halls and bars. Some experts even argue that the marcha is actually an older style with it’s roots in the pastoris (a religious christmas play that was quite popular in Europe during the 16th century, and brought to Brazil by Jesuit priests), and that over time marchas took on a secular nature and found their way into Carnival.
Marcha Patterns for Pandeiro:
The first two notated examples show the basic snare drum and bass drum parts for marcha. The pandeiro patterns in this lesson will be composites based on these two rhyhms.
bass drum (surdo)
Marcha pattern 1: a skeletal composite of the snare drum and surdo between the thumb and fingertips.
Marcha Pattern 1
Marcha 2: a second skeletal composite of the marcha rhythm. This one fills in the latter part of the rhythm to emulate where the snare drum would roll leading back to the downbeat.
Marcha pattern 2
Marcha 3: fills in more of the pattern, and offers a slightly different feel.
Marcha pattern 3
Marcha 4: same as pattern #3, but now completely filled in.
Marcha pattern 4
Marcha 5: emulates the shape of the snare drum and surdo the closest. Notice the consatant motion of the left hand.
Marcha pattern 5
Marcha 6: incorporates the use of the roll in the marcha pattern.
Marcha pattern 6
Marcha 7: Similar to 6, but with a longer roll that resolves to the downbeat.
Marcha pattern 7
