The book offers a beginning guide to rhythms for pandeiro, plus stylistic descriptions about maxixe, choro, samba, baião, and more. Ami is proud to offer the context for each rhythm, just like the História do Choro album with Rogerio Souza and Edinho Gerber of Duo Violão.

The book contains technique and rhythm to get you started, listening ideas, and why and when you would use the pattern in choro, samba or northeastern music.
