Cuica — The Most Provocative Instrument of Brazilian Music

I love the sound of the cuica! It’s certainly unique, and an integral part of Brazilian music, and the Samba sound. The cuica has a certain playful lasciviousness to its sublime sound. Add a cuica into the background of any Funk song (or even Rock song, which you’ll hear in my playlist), and you turn heads because everyone wants to know... “What’s that awesome sound I here?!”

Listen to a Spotify playlist and read the blog post at http://www.funkish.audio/cuica/ with examples of intriguing use of the cuica in gringo music (from James Brown, Miles Davis, The Rolling Stones, Beastie Boys, and more), as well as traditional examples from Batucada, Samba Soul, and other creative examples of how the cuica sounds in today's Brazilian music. Watch videos about Brazil’s king of the cuica, Salve Mestre Osvaldinho da Cuíca, and learn all about this one-of-a kind musical instrument.

I'm glad you dig it! There's nothing quite like the cuica, so it's cool to learn what it's all about, like in the videos with Osvaldinho da Cuica.
