Looking for this Brazilian musical instrument....toca de vinicius de moraes????

A friend returned from Rio with what appeared to be a small drum, but with a door with a screen door spring attached to the inside of the drum, and hanging down. When you move the 'drum' around, the spring resonates a very curious sound...like distant thunder. It drives my dog crazy but I'm looking for a source to buy for gifts. Maybe unique 'noise maker' and not musical instrument? Can you help? Many thanks or obrigado, Blake

De nada Blake! Thanks for your message. I am not familiar with the Brazilian musical instrument or noise maker that you mentioned but I will ask my friends, and if anyone knows, they will post here on this page in the comments section. Readers, does anyone know of the instrument that Blake is looking for? Thanks for your replies!
