PANDEIRO

Pandeiro is the name given to the Brazilian tambourine.

 

The pandeiro is very versatile and most popular percussion instruments used in Brazil. You'll get blown away by the vast range of sounds created by these very diminished musical machine. Although the instrument is very similar to a tambourine the technique used with both hands played simultaneously to produce a very dynamic sound. The drumhead or skin of the pandeiro is tuneable upon which any rhythm can be played whilst the rim holds metal jingles (platinelas) which create a high hat sound reminiscent of the drum kit. Pandeiro players to look out for: Marcos Suzanno / Jackson do Pandeiro / Sergio Krakowski + Many more

Marcos Suzano is the busiest Pandeiro player in Brazil he has collaborate with the best musicians in world he the must successful Pandeiro player in Brazil. Great workshop leader and very funny man.  Super pleasure to meet this amazing Carioca that for decades now are taking the Pandeiro to a different level for us to forget about the tambourine.  Axe Marcos Suzano

Pandeiro NEWCASTLE

Quote Claudio Kron.

 

‘The pandeiro reminds me of the descendents of the African slaves who would use their fork to hit plates to make music after their meals. To me the pandeiro is a very complete percussion instrument which, when played properly and well amplified, can imitate the bass drum, snare and high hat as found on a traditional drum kit.’
