The maraca was created by cumbo littin


This is a sort of article in which it would be really useful to have an image, IMO... I Googled a nice picture, (, but I can't figure out if it's okay to upload it or not.. I briefly read the info on WikiMedia, but I'm still not sure. So the link to the pic is here. Nuggit 01:56, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

Sega Videogame[edit]

Does this article really need the sentence about the maraca in the Sega videogame? It doesn't seem very important. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 06:15, 22 April 2007 (UTC).

one of the only games w/ such inputs possibly at the time so I think there should be a unique place for it75.61.134.65 (talk) 03:28, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

Human Brains?! I don't think so...[edit]

I deleted "maracas are mostly made up of human brains and puke some navtie americans used to eat these sacred maracas". I'd like to see a source for that! (talk) 21:23, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

Somebody vandalized it about two hours before you found it. I restored the previous good version of the article. --Apoc2400 (talk) 21:30, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

Latin or Spanish or both[edit]

I note this edit which I reverted while wikifying. I at first put Latin and Spanish music but our Spanish music article makes no mention of maracas. They are however common in latin music. Andrewa (talk) 18:31, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

What kind of sound?[edit]

One would expect the article to tell us something about the kind of sound(s) the instrument makes. "Everybody knows that" doesn't seem the right approach to me. I'm not qualified to answer the question myself. --GdB (talk) 19:37, 2 April 2015 (UTC)
