Shakers, Maracas & Rattles Cabasa, white wood

Wood wheel & steel beads. By twisting, the beads roll back and forth over the corrugated metal and produce a great shoop shoop sound, higher in pitch than the coconut Cabasa. Originally of African origin, they were constructed from dried oval or pear-shaped gourds with beads strung on the outer surface. The player places his non-dominant hand on the beads, to provide pressure, while holding the handle with the other hand and twisting the instrument back and forth as per the rhythmic pattern desired.
