The LP African Rattle produces full, yet delicate sounds
Great for studio work or traditional ceremonies
Made from the traditional hollowed gourd, it is wrapped in a lattice of nylon cord with colorful plastic beads
The shekere’s history begins in Africa where this unique instrument serves as a shaker, a rattle, and a drum. Traditionally made from hollowed gourds wrapped in a lattice of stones, the instrument is played by shaking or twisting it to get shaker and rattle sounds or by hitting the bottom of the body with the palm of the hand to get drum-like bass notes.
