Brazilian Instruments / Instrumentos - Chocalho / Rocar & Ganzá


The Rocar, consists of several small cymbals (platinelas) in a metal frame.
In the carnaval sambas of Rio, the rocar will generally play in the first part
of the enredo and is silent in the second part. The Ganzá is a metal cylinder
filled with metal balls. Much quieter than the chocalho, but still used in
pagode / bossa nova / mpb and ideal for childrens groups.

Chocalho – Artcelsior/King/RG
Chocalho / Rocar & Ganzá
Price: £51.00

BESTSELLER - 33cm x 16 cm (excluding handles). Unlike other metal framed chocalhos, this is easy to handle (being slightly shorter than other models) and produces a lovely musical ring. And it is loud with 60 metal jingles. Although these instruments have recently been usurped in popularity in Rio by the wood framed rocar, they are popular with school and blocos in the UK because of the lighter weight.
