LP Pandeiro

I have spent most of my time in the last few months concentrating on learning the berimbau. But lately I have been also learning how to play the pandeiro, more than just the basic capoeira toque. This I have know for as long as I can remember: tum ta tum shake…
Something like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TAhr_4Z-Vcs

So, that, I can do…

But there’s SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much more to playing the pandeiro! I’ve always been crazy about percussion anyway, so yesterday I decided to order a pandeiro online. It arrived today! I don’t know much about pandeiros, so it was an impulse buy… I didn’t buy anything expensive, just something to practice on. It doesn’t sound as deep as the ones I practice on, it probably need tuning, which in itself seems to be an art.

And herein begins my pandeiro learning 🙂

The first thing I need to learn is this basic samba toque – so I need to practice and practice and practice until I can do it fast:


She’s my ‘chará’ (same name)

Here’s my new Lain Percussion Pandeiro, LP (short for Lelé Pandeiro!!!!! not really, but it works)
