Through the years, whistles (bird calls) have evolved into an important element of traditional Brazilian Samba. Their unique and versatile musical voice has helped to shape the definitive musical sound and style commonly known today as "Latin" music. Most interestingly, Samba whistles, many with triple tones and intricate rhythmic possibilities, have become a standard piece on the performing percussionists table. Ours are authentic, handcrafted by Brazilian artisans, offering the very best in traditional Samba whistle design and tone. Made from beautiful & ecologically sound Brazilian Ipe wood. .
