In April, 2001 Scott Feiner arrived in Rio and began filming and interviewing pandeiro players ('pandeiristas'). His plan was to make a documentary film called "Meu Coração é um Pandeiro" ('My Heart is a Pandeiro'), showing the greatness of the instrument through portraits of some of its finest players. The project has been on hold for many years, but we've decided to post this demo/trailer which was made in July, 2001 for everyone to enjoy. Some of the pandeiristas who appear in this trailer are: Jorginho do Pandeiro, Celsinho Silva, Marcos Suzano, Serginho Krakowski, Bernardo Aguiar, Beto Cazes, and David do Pandeiro.
Music credit: The song which enters at 1:47 is "Escurinho / O Samba e o Pandeiro" sung by Zizi Possi on the CD "Valsa Brasileira". With Luiz Guello on pandeiro.
