Claudio kron do BRAZIL, I was born in in the South of Bahia in a city called Itabuna, I have been playing PANDEIRO since the age of 17, many times in theatre shows, groups, bands, or on the streets and Capoeira “Rodas” ( Circle) + events.
The Pandeiro has been a vital instrument for the growth and development of my music. This is how I see the Pandeiro, as the Piano is the songwriter of melodies and harmonies, The Pandeiro will be the rhythms writer for Brazilian percussion, more now as in the past 30 years or so the Brazilian style Pandeiro playing has captivated audiences from all over the world or gain another fellow musician who add the Pandeiro for their percussion sets.
The Pandeiro is a very practical instrument that can be carried very easily everywhere!
I have been teaching Pandeiro for over 20 years now and I have travelled to over 12 countries performing and teaching this amazing instrument. Another reason that I love to playing and teaching Pandeiro is that I get very close to my roots and get to situations where I’m able to tell stories spreading my cultures plus life philosophies.
