Pandeiro Baião (Forró)
Pandeiro Capoeira
Pandeiro Partido Alto
Pandeiro Samba
Pandeiro Samba Choro
Berimbau Angola

I’ve found the perfect metronome! EXACTLY what I needed for my capoeira practice. The app’s design is excellent, sound quality is great, and it works like a charm. Thanks, Samba Jig Productions!

Great sounds, but very limited and combos make no sense.

Why would you want to mix, say, choro pandeiro with berimbau Angola? There is no other ritmo to play with pandeiro choro that actually belongs in choro. Also, pandeiro samba and pandeiro choro sound the same in the app, but are not played the same ITRW. Love the effort and the authenticity of each ritmo, but way too limited for my needs as it is now.

False Advertising

Lies! The app developers lied- it stated on the App store description that it includes the berimbau Benguela toque but it does not! It includes berimbau Sao Bento Grande de Angola instead which is NOT the same. I feel CHEATED out of $3 for an app I bought specifically to practice Benguela but does not actually include Benguela 😡
