Who would have though that you could make an instrument out of Legolas' bow? A berimbau is made from a long wooden bow, whose ends are tied together with a steel string. A hollowed-out shell attached to one end amplifies the sound. You play the bow with a coin or a stone, a stick and a basket shaker.... you've definitely got your hands full when you play the berimbau! It may have originated in Africa, but it's mostly used in Brazil today, where it plays an important part in the Brazilian martial art of copoeira. This funky fighting style has capoeiristas dancing to the brath of berimbaus!
