Berimbau

This is composed of a bow-like body; the performer strikes the cord with a stick. This produces a deep resonance - the trademark 'Wah-Wah' sound - that is controlled by the movement of the cabaca against the musician's body. A coin or stone pressed against the string provides further control and a small Caxixi shaker completes the instrument. The African slaves took the berimbau to Brazil where it is now closely associated with Capoeira (Brazilian dance / martial arts).
