Originating in Africa, the Shekere is played by rapidly shaking and tossing the shell in the player's hand, generating its distinctive rattle sounds while hitting the bottom of the shell with the palm to create drum-like bass tones. Tycoon Percussion offers premium quality shekeres out of hollowed gourds with hand strung plastic beads in an adjustable nylon web.
