Tambor (Galician snare drum)

In Galician ’bandas de gaitas’ (bag pipe bands), the tambor takes up an important role. The tambor is a traditional wooden drum - not the snare drum that is used in (e.g.) Scottish and Asturian bands, though they are similar with the way the tambor is played. The rhythms and technique you will learn in this course can be applied to different musical styles.

The course

In a first cycle, you will learn the most important rhythms of Galician music (muiñeira, jota, pasodoble, rumba).

In the second cycle, we will work on speed and variation and you will learn some arrangements. During this cycle we will play together with the students of gaita.

The advanced students can also participate at workshops in Galicia and if they have reached a certain level of playing, they can become part of our band A Contrabanda.

Some of the classes of tambor and pandereita will be given together, so the students will get used to playing together.

The teacher

Karen De Pooter has been fascinated by Galician music for years. She plays in the band A Contrabanda. She took classes of pandereita with Veronica Codesal (Ialma), Miguel Anxo Lopez (Pepe Vaamonde Grupo), Xurxo Fernandez and Quiqué Péon (Radio Cos).
