Shekere Musical Instruments Rattle Music of Africa Percussion,
Rattle is a shaking idiom that is common in Africa. The variety of genres, materials, playing styles and timbres is enormous. The different types covered here are: gourd rattle, ball rattle, box rattle, basket rattle, tin rattle and knuckle rattle. Such instruments are so diverse that one might think that each tribe in the Congo had its own unique rattle, all made of plant material. The sound of a rattle can also vary greatly depending on the material used in the amp: small stones produce a hard, sharp sound, while softer particles produce a warmer sound.
