Handmade West African (Ghanese) Shekere x 1 - your Shekere uses "Tear of Job" beads and thick gourds for extra durability and ease of playing. Each gourd has a unique size and handle shape. Play by shaking, twisting or tapping (6 - 7in.)
Handmade West African Gankogui with Mallet x 1 - your recycled metal Gankogui has a double gong and a wood striker (12in.)
Ghanese Firikyiwa Thumb Bell with Ring x 1 - this unique instrument, made of hand-forged recycled iron, is a great way to lead an accurate rhythm in a large group. Strike 2 pieces together to play. The volume can be controlled by cupping the bell more tightly into the palm and dampening the resonance. (2.5in.)
African Calabash Rattle x 1 - this instrument is created from woven strips of cane and pieces of calabash gourd with pebbles inside. The Calabash Rattle produces a bell-like sound. Just shake or tap against your hand to create different sounds (8 x 4in.)
Peruvian Gourd Guiro with Striker x 1 - made in the Andes of Peru, this gourd guiro is beautifully decorated and is played by scratching the striker across the ribbed section of the instrument (12 in. - sizes vary)
Handmade Nigerian Uyot Seed Rattle x 1 - made from uyot seeds and palm fiber, this Rattle is attached to a nylon cord handle (approx. 5in.)
20 or 29 inch Chilean Cactus Rainstick x 1 - like the traditional Chilean instrument, this Rainstick is created from a dried cactus. Thorns pressed into the hollow shaft create the sound of rain as pebbles cascade over them
Ghanese Bolgatanga Market Basket x 1 - hand-woven using only natural, locally available materials, usually elephant grass. Colors/sizes may vary (19 x 15 x 6.5in.)
