Performance Percussion WBS Large Shekere

Large African shekere

We think:

This shekere is the perfect addition to any percussion collection - it is extremely popular in educational establishments such as schools and colleges.

The Shekere (pronounced shay-kuh-ray) is an ancient percussion instrument that was traditionally made from dried out hollow gourd covered in a skirt of beads or shells which had been woven together.

Although this is a very simple looking instrument there are actually many ways to play a shekere and a variety of sounds and tones can be produced. Striking the bottom of the shekere with the palm of your hand will produce a pounding drum like sound - using different parts of the palm and hand to strike the bottom of the shekere will produce various beating drum like sounds.

You can also shake the shekere to produce a sound which focuses more on the beads around the body of the shekere. Rubbing the beaded skirt around the shekere body will actually combine the sounds and tone of the beads with the sound of the hollow gourd rubbing against the beads.

A skilled shekere player will combine all of these methods to create a very uplifting beat which can then be played in conjunction with other instruments to complete a whole ensemble!
