Who Said the Triangle Was Boring?
(from January 22, 2011)
When many of us think of the triangle, we imagine a lonely, forgotten soul at the back of an orchestra, waiting and eternity for his big shining moment, that one little “ting” for the whole evening before fading back into oblivion.

Not so in Brazil, my friends. Not even close.
As you can see, unlike the tamborim, the triangle is actually quite easy to play, and is the perfect little instrument to bring to a night at the pub: (too bad this guy’s beater technique is being obscured by beer bottles, but you get the idea 😉
So grab your party hat and your triangle and be joyful! Whoever said the triangle is boring has never been to Brazil …
