What's included

The gÙiro or huiro is a Puerto Rican percussion instrument consisting of an open-ended, hollow gourd with parallel notches cut in one side. It is played by rubbing a wooden stick ("pua") along the notches to produce a ratchet-like sound. The gÙiro is commonly used in Latin-American music, and plays a key role in the typical cumbia rhythm section. The gÙiro is also known as calabazo, guayo, ralladera, or rascador. In Brazil it is commonly known as "reco-reco".
