Shekere (Shay-kay-ray) is a Yoruba word for a dried gourd shaker with a beaded net covering it. All Motherland’s shekeres are made from carefully selected and prepared Nigerian grown gourds. Selecting  the gourds takes some consideration for best sound and playability. Thin but strong and hard shelled ones are the best. These are light weight to hold and play and sound alive and responsive. Smallest to XX-large sizes are usually available but please check stock quantities while ordering.

The Pick-Your-Own shekere listings are one of a kind only. The image on this page represents the exact shekere you will receive. Similar sizes and design available. No two are exactly alike.
