Ekpiri Seed Belt Shaker

The ekpiri is a special type of seed husk that produces a lively musical sound. It is hard thick walled seed, smooth and shiny with a loud glassy and aggressive sound that will cut through when needed. This type of seed is native to the South-Central region of Nigeria.

About 20 seeds are attached to a braided natural fiber belt that can be wrapped around an artist’s leg or waist to add sound to their movements.

Made in Nigeria.
