Cuica, handmade from Brazil
This is a Cuica that I purchased in Brazil. a lot of Latin music features the Cuica, I also hear it in some Bob Marley and other Island music. It plays like a drum, but also, using a wet cotton ball you can make very unusual sounds using the stick that protrudes from the center of the cured skin.
