Burned Wood and Nile Grass Rain Maker Shakers

Swahili Modern


  • Nurture a love of music with these fair trade, handcrafted percussion instruments from Kenya. Shaking adds the crisp sound of beads against Nile grass stalks or when tilted gently, the rain maker shakers create the sound of falling rain. Each shaker is crafted with a wooden frame and handle dressed up with simple burned geometric designs.

    Small Rain Maker Shaker [Size: 9"L x 0.75"W x 6.5"T]; Large Rain Maker Shaker [ Size: 14"L x 1"W x 7"T]. Due to the handmade nature of this item, slight variation is expected.

  • We work with Kenyan artisans who have life-long training in the making of traditional African instruments such as hand drums and spin drums. The artisans craft each instrument from sustainably sourced wood and scraps of goat skin. After each instrument is constructed, Nairobi artists hand-paint the instruments, making each one-of-a-kind.
