Samba music, and actually all world music, often consists of a number of different musical pieces. Each of those individual pieces can in principle be repeated endlessly, until someone in the band indicates that it is time to move on to the next piece. To indicate when the band members should continue, the band leader blows a samba whistle on which, traditionally, 3 different tones can be played. For example, different signals can be agreed upon, for musical transitions but also for dance steps during a parade.
