The kayamb (kayamba, also known is a “maravanne”), is a flat rattle/shaker used in maloya and sega music on Mauritius and the Mascarene Islands, East African islands located in the Indian Ocean. Kayambas are made of sugar cane flower stems or reeds that are full of jequirity or canna seeds. A musician holds the kayamb flat and shakes it horizontally.
