Through the years, whistles have evolved into an important element of traditional Brazilian Samba.

Most interestingly, Samba whistles, many with triple tones and intricate rhythmic possibilities, have become a standard piece on the performing percussionists table.
Ours are authentic, handcrafted by Brazilian artisans, offering the very best in traditional Samba whistle design and tone.
