This is a colourful and brilliant two in one musical instrument. Shake it and you have the sounds of the maraca. Beat the leather and you have a drum. A wooden stick accompanies. As this musical instrument has been hand made from a gourd, every instrument has its uniqueness in shape, colour and size. Floral and Bird designs have been hand carved into the gourd.
Size: Dimensions of the musical instrument vary depending on the size of the gourd used but the approximate length is 20cm x 9cm
Not recommended for very young children without supervision. Age 3+
Purchased from C.I.A.P. ( La Central Interregional de Artesanos del Peru ) , a non- profit organisation which helps improve the social and economic situation of producers from many different regions of Peru. C.I.A.P. saw the need to provide a way for the producers to receive fair wages and safe working conditions without exploitation.
