Ganzá

The ganzá or shaker is used in nearly all Brazilian music. It is a cylindrical metal instrument filled with small stones or pieces of metal. By shaking the instrument a crackling sound is produced. The rhythm produced is usually based on 16th-notes with varying accents. The tone and volume depend on the dimensions of the instrument.
