from Carrapicho group, famous since 1996! Album Festa do boi bumba. The success of the title comes from the choreo, timed but very easy and convivial : dance as you like but everybody goes down while folding the knees when the song says tchikitchikitchac, with arms balancing through the air to the beat of tics and tacs.
This dance reminds of a traditional amazonian dance (of XVIIIth century) called boï bumba, portugese of "the ox and the tambourine". According to local folklore the boï bumba was the evocation of the death and the resurrection of an ox.
