Kashaka shakers originate from West Africa and are also known by many other names – Asalatua, Aslatua, Asalato, Cas Cas, Kes Kes, Kosika, Patica, Thelevi & many more.
They are a simple instrument – 2 small gourds originally made from dried fruit, filled with seeds, beads or pebbles & joined with rope – but are capable of creating highly complex rhythmic patterns and polyrhythms.
They are great ‘tool’ for any musician to develop and improve dexterity & rhythmic capabilities and can be used as a warm up before practice and performances.
They are also a lot of fun to play and although some of the more advanced moves are quite tricky, they can be used and enjoyed by anyone from primary age to adults.
