Being introduced to the Cuíca (-:

A friend went to a local concert where a cuíca was played.  She described the instrument as a "tin can."  I found a video showing how to make a cuíca from a tin can.  I found another video showing a more formal version of a cuíca as a featured instrument.  

My friend told me that it sounded something like a bird.  It makes me think of sound effects on the Saturday morning cartoons I watched as a child in the 1950s and makes me smile today.

You make music with what you have at hand I guess.
