Day 24: Violet Plays with the Boys

Violet is back, but now she has a backup band!  The Cat Fraternity Percussion Ensemble is pleased to perform with her.  That’s Tori on triangle, Milo on maracas, Connor on cowbell, Sheldon on soprano xylophone, and new comer Bob on bass.  They are having a great time playing this gig.

Don’t know what a guiro is?  This is what Wikipedia says:  The güiro (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈɡwiɾo]) is a Latin-American percussion instrument consisting of an open-ended, hollow gourd with parallel notches cut in one side. It is played by rubbing a stick or tines along the notches to produce a ratchet-like sound.

Guiros made for children are usually made of wood and are painted with red and green.  Kids sometimes refer to it as the “fish”.

I couldn’t resist making a small collage of my Making Music series.  I will make one at the end of this challenge with all 30 paintings, but here is a sneak peak.  I made this collage in Ipiccy.
