Description

The Shekere (shaker) is an important African instrument for the purposes of accompanying the Djembe or any drum circle.


This Cauri Shell Shake is netted with a strong nylon cord and produces a crisp, rail like, sound.  The sharpness or crispness of the Cauri shell falls between the Grain and the Bead Shekeres.


This instrument is very versatile and often found in many styles of music. In Africa, it is mainly found in Ghana, Nigeria, Togo, Benin and Sierra Leone. 

Constructed from a durable dried and hollowed gourd with a netting of Cauri Shells.


These gourds are amazingly durable.


Little care is needed, simply wipe with a slightly damp cloth. No oils or cleaning agents should be used. Do not expose your shekere to long periods of direct sun light or to excessive moisture.

Specifications:

Overall Length: 13 inches

Gourd Diameter: 8 - 10 inches

Weight: 1 lbs.
