The way I hear it as a samba where the samba idea is kept betwen the HH, and the Ride. the surdo is on the Snare drum with the odd side of the beat as a ghost note, as a ghost note and the even side, 2 and 4 of the beat is accented. The bass drum is doing the 'and ' of three, which gives it a half time rock feel.
