In New Mexico, I believe "raspa" is a noun to mean a percussion instrument which consists of one stick rubbed on another serrated stick. Has anyone heard of that usage'

This sounds similar to a "guira",a serrated metal tube which is scratched for a percussive sound.

several previous discussion on this "scratching/scraping" instrument. I thought we had a picture, but I can't find it.

It's also a type of Mexican folk music. Click on the preview Speaker Icon at this site to hear a sample.
