The Reco-Reco de cabaça is a scraper of African origin used as a percussion instrument in Brazilian music. It produces a unique scraping sound that adds another dimension to the already unique sound of a roda.
Traditionally, the reco-reco was made from a sawtooth notched cylindrical body made of bamboo or wood and played with a wooden stick. The instrument is used in many styles of Brazilian music, such as capoeira music, samba, and related genres.
