The Baião (BYE-OW) is another well-known Brazilian groove that every serious drummer needs to know. It originated in Bahia which is located in the northeast part of Brazil. The Baião is a single repeating bar with a consistent foot pattern that requires both feet. You will be playing a simple syncopated rhythm in the Bass Drum and beats 2 and 4 on the Hi-Hat pedal.
