Quick Overview

From the Bantu language, cangoma means "drum". The text, in a Portuguese dialect, celebrates the end of slavery. While the percussion is optional, it really adds a lot of "flavor" to this highly charged and fun-filled Brazilian folk song!  Also available for Three-Part Mixed, Optional Baritone Voices (BL831), SSA Voices (BL952) and TTB Voices (BL918).
