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.

The Pandeiro is the Brazilian tambourine which can sound like a whole drumkit in the palm of your hands!
I’m Claudio Kron from Brazil , a percussionist and multi-instrumentalist born in Bahia , the birthplace of Capoeira and Candomble . The Pandeiro’s origins lie beyond Brazil, but the particular Brazilian style of playing is at the core of so much traditional Brazilian music,
such as Samba and Maracatu, with legendary players such as Jackson do Pandeiro and Jorginho do Pandeiro up to more modern Pandeiro players like Marcos Suzanno, Bernard Aguiar and Bibi do Pandeiro leading the way. The unique way that the Pandeiro is held is a reminder of the music’s origins – Slaves brought from Africa to Brazil had no instruments but used to play rhythms on their food plates and developed the technique from this.
I have been part of WOMAD FESTIVAL family of artistes in UK and abroad for over 15 years,
But this is the first time we are digitising our workshops – an opportunity for everyone to
learn to play the real Bahian pandeiro – take it everywhere you go – be pandeiro crazy like me !
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
