A musical instrument anyone can play, maybe. Apparently, playing the maracas, aka rumba shakers, is not as easy as it looks. “Although a simple instrument, the method of playing the maracas is not obvious. The seeds must travel some distance before they hit the leather, wood, or plastic, so the player must anticipate the rhythm.” Is anything ever as easy as it looks when someone who knows what they are doing is doing it?
