Berimbau

 This is the signature instrument of Capoeira and this fellow in the video is pretty damn good with it. speaking as one who has been playing one for almost a decade I can appreciate how difficult it is to do what he did with it :)

This dude's like the Jimi Hendrix of the Capoeira world!!! Behind the back? I'm surprised he didn't start doing the duck walk like Chuck Berry! Seriously, he's really good. I was surprised, but then felt stupid, to realize that getting vibrato on this instrument only involves skillfully shaking the instrument to distort the sound waves. Hmmm.. You play the berimbau? Post up some vids, dude! =D

Very percussive. More like a chant than a song. What does it sound like when you play?
