New Gunga

A belated birthday present, from my wonderful, delightful friends (thank you xx) !!!  Now I have the full set of cabaças…  This one came from Germany, and I heard it had a perilous journey, hence the delay.  My viola and other berimbau also come from there.  I didn’t get a chance to bring any from Brazil, would you believe it!?

These are someone else’s…
Gunga, médio, viola

And these are MINE!!! all MINE!  In size order, the largest is gunga, or ‘berra boi’ (scream bull, literally), then médio or viola.  Then the smallest, with highest sound is violinha or viola.
