Shekere and Vocal Gourd Sales

A Shekere is an African percussion instrument made from a hollowed-out gourd or calabash with a macroméd covering of beads. Every Shekere handcrafted by Tiyé Giraud can be played professionally and also make beautiful art pieces for the home. A variety of ready-made small to large colorful and exotic Shekere are available or can be tailor-made for you.

A Vocal Gourd is a hollowed-out gourd or calabash minus the beads. The beautiful and natural petina is revealed and the compelling and true 'voice' of the gourd can be heard when struck. Vocal Gourds are also available in a variety of sizes.
