An African percussion instrument of the idiophone group, kass kass (or “kess kess”) are a pair of dried up seed pods joined by a short length of thong. Shaken and knocked, these ball shakers can give rise to innumerable rhythmic combinations.
These good-quality, natural seeds Kess kess are hand-made in Burkina-Faso.
The playing principle is based on a good coordination of arm/hand movements (each hand holding a pair of pods) to progressively increase the number of rhythmic combinations and explore the richness of this –only- seemingly basic instrument.
NB: Kess kess string vary in size (long or short). If you have any size-related wish about your kess kess, please remember to mention it in the “comment” form of your order.
