OK, let's get this issue settled once and for all.  They are not playing a balloon, a whistle or a skinned weasel.  It is an instrument called the "Cloacoa" and is played by alternatively stroking and squeezing with expulsions of air.  So, now that you know .. let's go back and listen to the nice music and close our eyes thinking about those lovely ladies dancing on the Bahia in those minuscule thongs and with those appreciable bronzed bodies ... oh my ghod .. all of that and the Cloacoa too ...

Edit:  and speaking of the expulsions of air, now there is the digeradoo ...
 
"Cloacoa"??
{#Lol}{#Lol}

The name of the instrument is CUÍCA.
Perhaps you've been influenced by the first sillable of the word, which means asshole, literally, in Portuguese.{#Stupid}
And the music has nothing to do with brazilian places or people (maybe it's similar to some crap played on shows at tourist restaurants). Only in those stereotype-driven minds...
crap
Think he's gettin' a bad rap, guitar is very good, room for him and Al too.
The album cover and big gulp pics just made my day
Could I have some Al DiMeola instead?

Thanks!

I am not picturing a balloon anymore.  I am picturing lovely ladies dancing...oh...something else..."...alternatively stroking and squeezing with..."  Stop!  Back to the Balloon.

Ok, who's the fucktard that decided a whistle is a musical instrument? This song never fails to give me a headache.....

I laughed my ass off at that comment... yes, I don't care for the sound of that "instrument" either.

He's got much better music than this! Really.. this is crap compared to some of his better stuff.

I'll take a #4 with the refried...and could you tell the guitar player to please harass another table, he's ruining my appetite.

{#Arghhh}  I love bossa nova, cuban son, flamenco .... but this sucks.... kinda Gay Gipsy Kings on ayahuasca
Fun toe-tappin' stuff, but I do wish they'd quit torturing that guinea pig :o). 7 from the Nottingham jury (would be 8 with a skinful of beer and a dance floor).

lol. i had a similar thought. sitting here enjoying the tune so decide to rate it in case I want to own it later. then I see the cover and think, "damn... a blond Yanni... there's no way." so the guy on the cover cost it at least a point or two.
:crashcomp: :beat: :stop: :skull: :moon: :mad: :drunk: NOISE!!!

A pleasant enough tune, but I could do without the damn police whistle in the background.

They say never judge a book by it's cover. But CD covers are 100% spot on with music like this. Dudes that look like Favio, play music that sounds like John Tesh... This song is neither Brazilian nor Mexican, it's elevator music. Alvaro

Awesome! Someone should hide chocolate in your kitchen and catch this on video. Actually laughed out loud.

I can't help but start laughing because this is about the 10th dancey-dance song in a row...hard not for it to force your mood upwards for a Monday, haha I think Bill is playing with our minds now
AMEN! I say "HELL, YEAH!" to this string of toe-tappin' chair-bouncin' head-waggin' tunes on this dreary Monday! (Although that Benise guy's Fabio-head is going to haunt me for the rest of the night...)
Hey Bill, are you trying to get me ready for the big Labor Day Caribbean Parade here in Brooklyn? You got me moving in my chair! :jump:

What is that instrument in the background that makes a hiccup-y sound?.. I love it!!! It seems to come up a lot in Samba music... Anyone know?
Hard to sit still to that one! :dancingbanana:
Can it be true that those noises were made by squeezing a chicken until it farts?
Oops. I just read below!! I love it!

This is just wrong, mixed brazilian music with tourist trap spanish guitar ,,, arrggg makes me sick ... Oscar PS: Started good and got tacky ..... to bad
Listening to a berimbau in Brazil in the evening with a cold drink will silence even the worst critic.
"Berimbau" From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The berimbau is the highly annoying screeching sound a McDonald's milkshake straw creates when a user is trying to suck its contents dry and moves the straw up and down quickly in the hole in the lid. Many localities have recorded homicides and attempted homicides as a result of frequent playing of the berimbnau. Some recording artists have found favor with the ability to annoy listeners while at the same time quickly enjoying a milkshake. Sorry about the blank post earlier...boss in proximity... :taped-shut: What I meant to say is that the berimbau doesn't sound anything like a Micky D's milkshake straw. That instrument is, in fact, a "guica"... and it can be heard on Bob Marley's "Could You Be Loved".

This song makes me want to dance, despite the work that awaits me tomorrow morning at the crack of dawn . And I especially want to dance because of the berimbau. LOVE that thing! (Thanks for the background info and pictures!)
Muchas gracias para las musica hermosa. Benise - Carnaval Rubén Blades - Bochinches
"Berimbau" From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The berimbau is a single-string percussion instrument, a musical bow, from Brazil. The berimbau's origins are not entirely clear, but there is not much doubt on its African origin, as no Indigenous Brazilian or European people use musical bows, and very similar instruments are played in the southern parts of Africa. The berimbau was eventually incorporated into the practice of the Brazilian martial art capoeira, where it commands how the capoeiristas move in the roda. The instrument is known for being the subject matter of a popular song by Brazilian guitarist Baden Powell, with lyrics by Vinicius de Moraes. The instrument is also a part of Candomblé-de-caboclo tradition.

That's called a berimbau and it actually is a pretty cool instrument
Make it stop!

I'm being told it's called an "electric monkey". I think I'm being taken for a fool...

Nice, cool classical sound

Yeah, maybe they have the ensemble from STOMP doing backup percussions! Including the straw in the cup (yeah, it's in the STOMP show). :bananajam:
Sounds like they are torturing a donkey during a couple stretches here. Bleck!

exactly what I thought, immediately made me think of "Edith" by BNL, who DID use a straw for the sound!
Excellent guitar work!
Definitely not as cool as the Ruben Blades song preceeding it, but still better than the average rating, IMHO. Great set, Bill! :dancingbanana:
