Pandeiro is considered by many the Brazilian national music instrument. A frame drum with jingles, it is related to the "adoufe" (a square tambourine native to Portugal) and to the oriental Riqq.
This quite sophisticated instrument allows the player a large number of different sounds. Pandeiro is played throughout Brazil in various types of music: Samba, choro, forró, “regional”… A good pandeiro player is supposed to be able to imitate all sounds of a drum band : hitting the outer part of the head with the thumb gives a low note while slaps on the center of it produces a dry, loud impact. As for the jingles, they add a crisp touch to the instrument’s overall range.
This Contemporânea model's most important feature is its weight. As a natural-head pandeiro, it can be used to play in Choro bands but it will also satisfy Samba or Forro players. This is a high-quality instrument, with a sturdy, reliable finishing.
