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 a professional-quality instrument. It is perfectly reliable and should satisfy any “cuiqueiro”, including professional musicians who play on stage or in open air parades.

It can be played with a strap.

Jolie son profond, bonne facture et léger. Par défaut ce type d'instrument demande de la finesse dans la pression exercée sur la tige de bois intérieur pour obtenir les notes désirées surtout pour les sons aiguës. Volume sonore présent. Malgré l'inox, j'ai eu de la rouille à l'intérieur du fût à cause de mon éponge mouillée en frottement sur la tige de bois (ne pas oublier de nettoyer l'humidité après usage). Il s'adapte plus pour en jouer en accompagnement d'un groupe de musicien qu' en solo.
