pandeiroThe pandeiro is a Brazilian type of hand frame drum, having a wooden rim and a natural skin head. The rim holds series of metal jingles, which are cupped.

This instrument is a relative of the common tambourine. The difference between them is that the pandeiro’s drumhead is tunable and allows the playerto change the pitch and tone of the instrument.

Usually, the pandeiro is played by holding it in one hand and hitting it with the other, but experienced players could produce variety of sounds out of the instrument by hitting it with different parts of their hand and body: the palm, the fingertips, flat fingers, the thumb, the hips, etc.
