help!!





This was a campaign done for Lynx Deodorant a few years ago. If anybody knows the name of the Blue and Pink instrument in the girl's hand in the Brazil frame, it would help me in a campaign we're trying to do. If anybody does, please help by leaving a comment. I wish there was somebody who could. Thanks for the help. Cheers!

Hi, Glad that I can help you out with something... the instrument the girl is holding is called Maracas or as Wikipedia points out... rumba shakers.

Looks like "maracas", a musical instrument used for folk music there, known as "Samba".

You might remenber an old Disney's picture featuring Donald Duck, a mexican rooster and a brazilean parrot. =)

I believe that they're maracas? (see the Wikipedia entry, or the really cool video game controllers that Sega was making a few years ago) Hope that helps, and thanks for running this blog, by the way!

This is not a brazilian instrument and it´s not used in Samba. The most common instrument here to play Samba is Pandeiro.

Funny how south american countries look all the same for some people.
