  • (shek-eh-ray  oh-woh-eh-yo)

    A huge and thick calabash with large cowrie shells attached, using soft, thick string.

    Very distinct and organic sounding instruments used in traditional Yoruba music.

    (Made with joined calabash necks, they are not repairs)

    Traditionally, these are inherited instruments and only for certain family members to play. However, these ones are newly made and for sale to all.
