no, the left hand is the white open hand, palm up, with thumb extended to the left,  the right hand is the black -and- half black hand "playing" on the white hand "drum"...

I am looking at the left hand (alone below) and the thumb is on a side that I can't wrap my head around. 

The left thumb is in the middle with the hand upward and out. That's not possible if this is meant to be expressive.

No, I think I didn't explain very well =p
The handshape and orientation of the left hand is thisImagem inline 1 , as if it were a pandeiro, not holding one pandeiro.

Hi Gustavo,
looking at you-tube videos ... I tried to write it this way –
 
left hand holding the pandeiro – right hand makes the thumb drumming ;-)
 
What do you think?
 
 
All best Stefan

I think that sign is a "iconic imitation" of the playng of 'pandeiro' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Pandeiro_in_hands.jpg) - that is: the location is the 'passive' hand (an iconic pandeiro), and the active makes the "druming" (shaking the hand from the wrist). 
Sorry but I cannot insert this sign in the SignPuddle...
