FUN Google facts:


The origin of the tambourine is unknown, but it appears in historical writings as early as 1700 BC and was used by ancient musicians in West Africa, the Middle East, Greece and India. The tambourine passed to Europe by way of merchants or musicians.
An clip of Mexican percussionist Gabriela Jiménez playing the tambourine has gone viral, amassing over 200,000 views and 3,000 shares on Facebook. Using the skin, frame and metal jingles (called ‘zills’), Jiménez creates an extraordinarily rhythmic performance.
The tambourine is a musical instrument in the percussion family consisting of a frame, often of wood or plastic, with pairs of small metal jingles, called “zills”.
So, it might not be that the tambourine is a forgettable instrument after all. And it is certainly not the case that this musical instrument is in some sense easy. Rather, despite its humble appearance, it takes a good bit of work to master.


Handheld tambourines: To play a handheld tambourine, hold it in your non-dominant hand and strike it against your other hand, or shake it in the air. If you hold the tambourine at a 45-degree angle with the ground, you’ll get greater vibration from the zills.
