Our cacho seed shaker features a colorful textile strap with a velcro closure making it easy to slip onto your wrist or ankle. The cacho depicted on the left has pieces and half shells, giving it a higher pitched sound. The one on the right is strung using full seeds, giving it a deeper pitched sound. Sold Individually. Due to hand made nature colors and designs vary.
Handcrafted in Peru.
Cachos are important to indigenous music and these hand-crafted Andean cachos are made in Peru. A traditional percussion instrument from the Andes, they have a rich pre-Colombian tradition. All are made either with seed pods or bells. Cachos are bound together with string and adorned with a hand woven cinta, or strap, either by being attached to or around something. Cachos are used by Andean groups to keep rhythm when they are shaken to the beat.
