Early History

The Tambourine (timbrel, tambour de Basqui, Panderete) is believed to be Near Eastern origin.

It has been found in various forms in Assyria, Egypt, China, India, Peru, Greenland, the Caucasus and Central Asia.

The instrument became an accepted mainstay of the classical orchestra during the nineteenth century, featured in Igor Stravinsky’s ballet ‘Petrushka’, as well as in works by Berlioz and other composers.
