Cuica is traditionally played in Brazilian Samba bands. High-pitched, its tone has a squeaky quality that reminds the instrument’s own name. It is said to imitate animal voices (monkey).

A cuica consists of a small, one-head drum with a thin, light wood stick attached to the centre of, and perpendicular to, its head. Typically, the player uses its right hand to rub the stick up and down (with a wet piece of cloth), holding the instrument’s body at chest height with the other arm. The rubbing produces a vibration that the drum turns into a long voice-like sound. The left thumb can change the pitch of that note by pressing down on the skin of the drum near the place where the stick is attached.

This model is mid-size, easy to carry, aimed at musicians who need a simple, convenient instrument. It is fully satisfactory in both indoor and outdoor performances.

It can also be played using a strap
