This instrument is like a giant set of pan pipes but instead of blowing, which would require superhuman lung power, you clap at the end of each tube to get different pitches. You can also hear a hammered dulcimer and dan bau monochord in the background.
Structure of the son genre including: Clave, Bongo Martillo pattern, Maracas pattern, outline of Bongo Bell pattern, Anticipated Guitar chord strumming, Tres/Cuatro guajeo pattern.

This is the martillo pattern of the bongo drums used by the bongocero in a Cuban son ensemble, with Maracas pattern(including triplet on the 1+).
The bongo-bell comes in 2nd half, as it does in the montuno section of the son. (Also some fills from timbales)

This is the website intro I created for local ghost tour company Shiverpool. The scream was recorded in William Huskisson's tomb in St James' Cemetery at the foot of Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral.
I have used preverb and reverse effects on the scream and distortion and delay on my heartbeat (recorded with an adapted stethoscope).
