Unique Percussion in Pop-with Michael Juk

Percussion is one of the oldest instruments after the voice. We tend to think about the drum and the cymbals when we think about percussion, but other, lesser known instruments often add a unique little sound to pop. 

In honour of Drum Month (otherwise known as November,) CBC Music producer, Michael Juk drops by to talk about the world of alternative pop percussion.

Pictured left is the "Vibra Slap" used widely by Neil Peart from Rush.
