Is this a continuous noise done while moving your hand close to your
mouth, then moving it away a tiny bit, then again close to your mouth
and so on? If so, it used as a form of "cheering" among Scouts in
Italy instead of clapping hands. It is quite common, say, at a Camp
Fire, to have a Patrol perform something, then everyone starts doing
this noise except fo some *really* puzzled novices who staart clapping
hands, then suddenly don't know what to do... :-)
