Brazilian Drums

Brazilian Drums

The drums of Brazil are richly embedded in the history of South American and African cultures. These drums are best known for the sound of the Samba, but can also be found in many other genres of music from rock to reggae. Brazilian drums include the Repinque, Surdo, Pandiero, Caixa and Tambourim, among others, each with its own unique sound, style and purpose within Brazilian music.
