The Adufe is a traditional quadrangular Portuguese percussion instrument. It is made in wood and goat or sheep skin and is played traditionally by women. Inside it there are generally some small beans or pebbles that give it a peculiar sound. It is said to be introduced by the Arabs in the Iberian Peninsula between the 8th and the 12th century.
