Shake it up! In a samba bateria the chocalho supports the caixas with swingy 1/16th notes. In the hands of masters like Markinhos the chocalho can be it’s own improv soloing instrument. Beautiful! Chocalho is a broad term for all types of shakers. The chocalhos with jingles are rocars. Chocalhos with beads inside a tube are ganzas.
