The instrument that accompanies Capoeira, the Brazilian martial art/dance.
The Meinl Berimbau is a traditional African instrument that is commonly used in the music of Brazil and other South American countries. It is the staple instrument of capoeira, the famous martial arts dance. The thin striker and a caxixi are held in the right hand, while the left hand supports the bow and modulates the string with a small metal disc. The whole Berimbau is moved off and on the abdomen, opening and closing the resonant gourd, for a captivating wah-wah effect.
