The shekere is an ancient traditional percussion instrument of West Africa. Popular from Senegal to Nigeria, they are a central feature of traditional Ewe music. In Ghana and Togo they are called “axatse”, in Mali and Guinea as “djabara”.

The calabash is a dried gourd which is hollowed, cleaned and threaded with small shells collected from the shorelines of Ghana to create the shekere. They produce crisp or sandy effects to depending on how they’re played.

As these are made from natural gourds there is a natural variation in sizing.
