About Ghanian Beaded Shekere Gourd Shaker - Small

Use our shekere to add distinctive rhythmic sounds to your band’s music or enjoy its swoosh-rattle sound at home. The shekere is a time-honored West African instrument brought by slaves to Cuba. It was picked up by Cuban jazz musicians and is now featured in Latin American music. These traditional shekeres are made by filling a hollow gourd with beads or shells, and tying beaded netting around the outside. Shake, twist, slap the shekere to get a variety of sounds. Our shekeres come in small, medium, and large sizes. These small ones are 8-11” long. Made in Ghana.
