Similar to a Shekere or Gourd Cabasa, the Afuche Cabasa was designed to create rhythmic scraping sounds and patterns. The steel chain beads can be manipulated against the textured steel or the instrument can be spun or shaken for varying sounds, the likes of which can be heard in music all over the world.
The larger models produce louder, fuller sounds while the smaller models provide more control and softer volumes. This cabasa from Percussion Plus has a sturdy wood and stainless steel construction and is incredibly durable which makes it ideal for use by young players and in education. This instrument should be included in every percussionist’s arsenal and is the perfect addition to any classroom percussion box.
