Product Description

Obtain with this instrument the pure and exotic sound of the Brazilian soul

Gope Musical Instruments manufactures and supplies percussion instruments and parts to professional musicians since 1962.

The cuica is an instrument originated from Africa, mainly Angola. In his description of inland Angola in the sixteenth century, the English explorer Andrew Battell describes the encounter with an African lord of Ingombe who uses the Kipuita (local name of cuaca) to announce his arrival. It may have been brought to Brazil by Bantu African slaves, but links can be traced to other parts of northeastern Africa, as well as to the Iberian peninsula.. The cuIca was also called "lion's roar" or "friction drum". In its first versions it was used by hunters to attract lions with the roars that the instrument can produce.Its use is very widespread in Brazilian popular music, mainly samba..

After being integrated into the Brazilian percussive arsenal, the cuica was traditionally used by samba schools in carnival groups, but is currently also found in contemporary jazz and funk styles, disco music, reggae and Latin rhythms, such as salsa..
