Pandeiro is considered by many the Brazilian national music instrument. A short-shell 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. The 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 pandeiro made by Izzo is designed to accompany choro, but it also suits all types of Brazilian music traditionnally (Samba, forró, coco...). It is pretty light and has a warm, pleasant tone; a plain, reliable instrument with a careful finishing.
