Despite it’s East / African origin the Cuíca has become a genuine instrument in Brazil. As part of samba schools from the 1930's the Cuíca is present in various aspects of Brazilian music and became a tool with features typical of Brazil. It’s execution combines technical, swing and has a unique sound.
A novelty in the new libraries is the individual control of session microphones. You can mix 2 distinct microphones in different positions providing more freedom and tone options in the song. Control the microphones even within the loops.
Really natural sounding Brazilian percussion. I bought this to do some dance/club music in the style of Buraka Som Sistema
