Introducing the Percussion Plus Honestly Made Rakatak rattle

This is a primitive rattle, made from a stick with rings of calabash. Also known as a wasembe, telewasa, and wasaumba, the rakatak rattle has a unique and distinctive sound when the discs of calabash clack together.

Calabash is more commonly known as bottle gourd, a fleshy fruit often grown naturally in Senegal. It has a thick skin that, once dried, becomes firm and has a multitude of uses, from bottles (hence the name) to musical instruments and more.

This rakatak rattle is sourced using Fair trade principles. See below for more information about the Honestly Made range of musical instruments from Percussion Plus.

These items are musical instruments not toys and there may be small parts on or in some of them. Younger players should use them under supervision.


How to play

Quick downward motions cause the calabash discs to clack together, creating an interesting, mellow tone. There are typically 5 discs on the stick so, when shaken continuously, a full percussive sound is produced.

Our sustainable packaging

A key principle of Honestly Made is sustainability, and we’ve modified our packaging of these items accordingly by adopting fully recyclable and biodegradable glassine paper bags.

Naturally, we don’t want to waste our pre-existing packaging material, meaning you might still receive some of these products in classic, non-glassine packaging. If so, rest assured that your order has contributed to our collective waste management mission.




Percussion Plus Honestly Made products are manufactured in independent family workshops that are too small to join Fair Trade groups or are located in countries that do not have such organisations. These suppliers and their subsidiaries all follow Fair trade principles which include:

  • Agreeing a fair price Use of recycled materials
  • Paying significant amounts upfront
  • Being loyal and reasonable in all dealings
  • Prioritising smaller suppliers over large factories
  • Manufacturing methods that do not damage the environment
