The aslatua (ah-SLAH-too-uh) is a unique hand percussion toy that will capture your attention with its tricky polyrhythm. This simple instrument (also known as aslato, kashaka, cascas, televi, kasso-kassoni, and more) is played by holding one gourd in the palm while simultaneously shaking and swinging the second gourd. The gourds come from the Swawa tree in West Africa, which are dried, hollowed, filled with pebbles or small seeds, and connected with a string. You'll have hours of fun playing with this traditional African instrument, which is covered by our warranty, and features: * two small, strong Swawa gourds filled with tiny pebbles or seeds * strong connector rope, securely fastened to each gourd * multiple uses: conventional "egg" shaker; polyrhythmic percussion instrument * great gift for any percussion enthusiast NOTE: If there is writing on the instrument it is the name/signature of the cultural artisan who made it. We encourage our aritsans to sign their work to reduce the gap between the person whose talent and energy went into building the instrument, and the musician who eventually benefits from their skill and care.
