The Beat of the Brazilian Tambourine

Cabruêra is currently one of the most important Brazilian bands in terms of the preservation of our traditional rhytms and their development in a blend of diversified musical tendencies, in such a way that they manage to be traditional and avant-garde at the same time. Their offer to hold a rhythm workshop based on the Brazilian tambourine at the Embassy has honoured us very much.

The cultural traditions that communities, groups and individuals all over the world receive from their ancestors and pass along to future generations constitute a major trove and are to be understood as part of humanity’s rich cultural heritage.

As a rhythmic instrument known worldwide, the tambourine appears in several different cultures, being played in several different ways. Used as accompaniment for gipsy dances in Eastern Europe or for Capoeira circles in Brazil, it also shows up as a protagonist of ‘Samba’, ‘Coco de Roda’ and ‘Embolada’ performances.

Such versatility makes the tambourine an extremely dynamic instrument, from the symphonic universe to the electronic music beat.

Bearing in mind the importance of the close relationship between tradition and modernity in its use, Cabruera will present at this workshop the beat of the Brazilian tambourine and its diverse rhythmic possibilities.

Batidas do Pandeiro brasileiro

As tradições culturais que comunidades, grupos e indivíduos, em todas as partes do mundo, recebem de seus ancestrais e passam aos descendentes, firmam-se como tesouro maior, compreendidas como parte do rico patrimônio cultural da humanidade.

Instrumento rítmico conhecido no mundo inteiro, o Pandeiro aparece em diversas culturas, sendo tocado de inúmeras maneiras diferentes. Utilizado como acompanhamento em danças ciganas do Oriente ou rodas de Capoeira no Brasil, ele aparece também como protagonista no Samba, no Coco de Roda e na Embolada.

Essa versatilidade faz do pandeiro um instrumento extremamente dinâmico, servindo desde o universo sinfônico até as batidas da música eletrônica.

Considerando a importância da estreita relação entre tradição e modernidade no seu uso, a Cabruêra apresenta nesta oficina as batidas do Pandeiro Brasileiro e suas diversas possibilidades rítmicas.
