(Check the note at the end !)
I'm Ahmed Fouda from the group Naçao Capoeira Cairo under coach Flama (Vincent).
-- This berimbau is only 1.2 CM long; just what the (very) old mestres used to play

-- Flama brought me a berimbau from France (a medio biriba) which was amazing, it felt like a big piece of the puzzle just landed into place once i started playing it. It was my first 'bau and I named it "Nascimento" (the birth)

-- It broke, unfortunately but i had the idea of removing the broken part (~50 cm !) and making a new one and it WORKED ! :D
Say hello to "Nascimento Pequino" (it actually turned from a medio to a viola !)

****NOTE: At this length, you can vary the sound of the berimbau greatly by adjusting the height of the cabaca just a tiny bit.
Oh and i just learned to get the hang of Iuna like...5 hours ago so don't hold it against me lol
