When you dance to Latin music, you move to the music of the güiro, which provides a rhythmic foundation for many Latin American music genres. Tracing its origins to the pre-Columbian indigenous people of the Caribbean, the güiro was later adopted by various other cultures. The player holds the instrument firmly by the holes in the back and rubs a stick over the grooves to produce the sound.
This fish-shaped instrument is made in Bolivia of bamboo and includes a scraper.
