African Natural Gourd Shekere - Cowri Shell
This is our most popular shekere model from Africa. The drum is made from a natural calabash gourd that is thick, durable and shows the beautiful natural colorations of the gourd. The hand woven net contains cowri seashells that produce a loud, warm sound due to their size and weight. Play it by shaking it or by hitting the bottom of the gourd.

We categorize this instrument as a "medium" size. The actual sizes will vary since the gourds are organic in nature and come in a range of sizes. Measurements range between 7-12 inches tall and 5-8 inches wide.
