A short course in Pandeiro
Global Grooves in association with Brighter Sound is proud to announce its second short course in the Brazilian pandeiro. The Global Grooves team have developed a short modular study of the pandeiro, giving you an introduction to playing techniques, putting several styles under your belt and helping you play along in your performance groups and ensembles.
Delivered by the Global Grooves core team (Leon Patel, Eraldo De Sa Marques and Holly Prest) the course will help you to develop pandeiro techniques in a fun, friendly and supportive environment.
This course is suitable for complete beginners to intermediate players and will focus on key styles including Capoeira, Samba, Coco, Funk and contemporary styles as well as tips and simple juggling tricks to spice up your playing. We will also explore how the pandeiro can be used with amplification and mics to create the sound of the whole Bateria in the palm of your hand.
Some instruments can be provided but participants are encouraged to bring their own if they have them.
Caution – Pandeiro playing is highly addictive!
