The theremin /ˈθɛrəmɪn/, thair-ə-min; originally known as the ætherphone/etherphone, thereminophone or termenvox/thereminvox is an early electronic musical instrument controlled without physical contact by the thereminist (performer). It is named after the westernized name of its Russian inventor, Léon Theremin, who patented the device in 1928.
A güira (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈɡwiɾa]) is a percussion instrument originating in the Dominican Republic, generally used in merengue, bachata, and its subgenres, which in use is similar to the maraca or the trap-kit’s hi-hat but formed of sheet metal—in practice, sometimes from a five gallon oil can played with a stiff brush, similar to the Puerto Rican güiro. Performers on the güira are referred to as “Güireros”.
