In the first half of the GoldenEye Overture (called Half Of Everything Is Luck), there is a percussion instrument I've been wondering about. It appears at the fourth beat (or on the off-beat just after) of every other measure through most of the piece (starting at 0:10).

It also appears in the lobby shoot-out scene of the Fifth Element

At about 1:16, you hear it just as the camera cuts from Bruce Willis' character to a group of three monsters. It sounds like a pipe or something. What instrument is it?

  • I seem to recall that the same instrument made an appearance in Leon the Professional as well, but I've been unable to find a clip of it. – Arthur Jun 20 '18 at 13:05

You mean the sound like a dog barking? Probably a Cuíca.
