The shekere is a West African percussion instrument consisting of a dried
gourd with beads or cowries woven into a net covering the gourd. The instrument
is common in West African and Latin American folkloric traditions as well as
some of the popular music styles. In performance it is shaken and/or hit
against the hands.
The shekere is made from vine gourds that grow on the ground. The shape of the
gourd determines the sound of the instrument. A shekere is made by drying the
gourd for several months then removing the pulp and seeds. After I scrub it I
add colorful beads and colour it.
It was very enjoyable to make an instrument from gourd.
I used about 720 wooden beads. It has a quite high sound.
It is 12 inches high and 9 inches wide.
Made of parachute rope. Adorned with mardi gras colors purple, yellow and
green beads.
The handle I made from leather prevents it from slipping out of your hand
while playing. It can be easily removed if you don't want to use it. I will
send it with a bag that I sewed to carry and protect it from dust.
Please feel free to ask for different colors and sizes.
