Lecturer: Matthias Haffner (Germany) 
Instruments: Pandeiro
Course content:

The Pandeiro is the name of the Brazilian frame drum and without any doubt, it is the most important and most outright percussion instrument of Brazil. Due to its wide sound spectrum, it is very popular in many different musical styles: not only in Samba, Choro or Baião (where the Pandeiro is traditionally played), but also in pop music or funk, this rhythmical instrument can be used, and even replace a drum set. In contrast to most of the frame drums, the Pandeiro has to be played horizontally, which leads to an entirely different rhythm concept orienting considerably towards “groovy” sounds. Matthias Haffner will introduce in this workshop different playing techniques he had seen, learned and developed through the years by masters of all regions of Brazil. 

In this years Tamburi Mundi pandeiro workshop, Matthias wants to explore the possibilities of this great frame drum with you, diving into different techniques and styles. Also, as it will be a special online-edition, Matthias wants to dedicate time to answer all your questions about this instrument.

Language of instruction:


Level: basic/intermediate = little (Basic) or good (intermediate) experience in pandeiro playing or with musical and rhythmical precognition on other instruments.
The lecturer will teach the group in a differentiated way responding to both of the levels.
