A little shekere
Here's a little shekere I just made for a friend of mine who is an incredible quintocero. He picked the gourd. He likes them small. Anyways, it's been a while since I posted one of these here. It may be small but it still has a strong sound. Very light with great action. Still, I like my shekeres to be on the large size. I'm working on two incredible gourds right now.
So stay tuned bloggers and rumberos! I've got some great posts coming up. An in depth article on how to make a shekere like this one. Also I'm going to be posting the program from the Los Munequitos de Matanzas concert that just happened here in San Francisco. And as an extra bonus I'll be posting my (ahem) bootleg audio recording of that even as well for your listening pleasure.
...and it looks like this is my 100th post! Vaya!
