Here’s the Gringo’s Washboard Band, which hails from Curitiba, Brazil. Guto Krainski, the washboardiste, plays his wavy-crimped board in la mode à l‘américaine. He scrapes with thimbles, and his board is rigged out with a couple of tin cups and a call bell. I really like the nice, clean sound he gets on his drags.
The video’s a little too arty for my taste, but the music is good.
