Info Full description
This Percussion Plus kayamba square is handmade in Kenya and decorated with a traditional Kenyan design. It creates a dry sandy sound when shaken or beaten and is the perfect instrument for percussionists looking to create a more complex sound. The sturdy construction and wooden handle makes the instrument comfortable to hold and easy to play.

The kayamba rattle originates from Kenya and is a flat percussion instrument made from reeds and wood, then filled with stones or beads. The reeds are woven into two mats mounted on a wooden frame and then separated by the stones or beads. When shaken or beaten, these reed mats rustle together to produce a unique dry sandy sound and create complex rhythms. The kayamba is assumed to be one of the oldest rattles, getting its name from the Swahili word for rattle, and has grown in popularity due to its unique sound.
