hi guys! i was wondering how the monkey sound in latin jazz originated. you know, it's the one you usually hear in salsas that go "hoo hoo hoo haaa!" along with the beat hehe.  

i was imagining that while some latin jazz band was playing a long time ago, a monkey was on a tree making those sounds along with their beat, so they decided to take the monkey along with them anywhere they went, but since the monkey could get rowdy, they just recorded their favorite monkey yell hahah=)
There is one comment, leave a comment.
are you talking about the kumbia kings?
the cd called "spiral" comes with a dvd also.  those are some of the videos that are on youtube.
i believe her newest album also comes with a dvd (?) but i don't have it yet...
oh i just hear a monkey-like sound on most latin jazz songs i listen to on the radio, the sound effect is even on most digital pianos nowadays, just wondering whoever thought that a monkey sound would be ok in music hehe=)
are you talking about that thing that opens up on herbie's "watermelon man"?  i can't for the life of me remember what that thing is called, but it does sound like monkeys having sex or something.  i think from this point on i'll call it the "monkey sex drum".

wow that's interesting, i never knew you can make another instrument (aside for drumming purposes) using a coconut shell:o

coconut shells are useful for cleaning the floor too (with a little wax for shinier effect).
and for making horsey sound effects while dressed up as knights.
