Chocalho is the generic name for "shaker" in Portugese. In this particular case, it is a kind of jingle stick used to play samba music - a traditional Brazilian rhythmic instrument typically used to sustain the rhythm of the Surdos or Repinique. It's played by shaking it back and forth and forcefully pumping the arms up and down to create sharp accents with the jingles. Featuring 45 pairs of aluminum jingles across five rows, the Chocalho is constructed of lightweight steel for enhanced playing comfort while maintaining strength and durability. The Tycoon Chocalho has ergonomically-designed handles for maximum comfort and playability.
