A sekere is a hollowed gourd surrounded by a “skirt” of beads that clatter against it when shaken. Sekere.com tells us that though “the sekere gourd has a small bulbous ‘head’ atop a thin ‘neck’ attached to a suddenly large, round ‘belly,’…the ironic thing about the sekere gourd is that the “perfect” one is not always the best for the musician. Sometimes, imperfections work in the musician’s favor.” The sekere is loud. The sekere is awesome!
