The Qweeka, or cuica, is one of the best-loved Brazilian percussion instruments.
Made from lightweight aluminum, with lightweight and solid construction that makes it a perfect drum for street samba. An internal bamboo shaft is embedded in the goatskin head and rubbed with a damp cloth, producing its distinctive hoarse, squeaking sound.
The Meinl Qweeka is derived from the Brazilian cuica, which is found in carnaval percussion groups as well as fusion and reggae music.
