Brazilian percussion reflects the history, society, culture and geography of a massive segment of the South American population. In one sense rhythms are complex and diverse; in another, they stroll along more unfettered than, say, Cuban music, which must adhere to the clave. The Carnaval parades, the voices of exotic jungle birds, or even the joyful cries of children are replicated in these Brazilian instruments. The double-headed LP Repinique is the perfect complement to the Surdo, traditionally played with a stick and used to signal shifts in tempo or dancer activity. The LP Repinique is light in weight and yields high pitched exclamations that penetrate the noise of a street throng. Tensioned high, the LP Repinique holds pitch securely by means of six, adjustable tuning screws positioned below the rim for comfort. The top head incorporates a special radius top that is easy on the hands.
