Beaded coconut. By twisting, the beads roll back and forth over the rough coconut and produce a great shoop shoop sound. Lower in pitch than wood and metal cabasa. Originally of African origin, they were constructed from dried oval- or pear-shaped gourds with beads strung on the outer surface. The player places his non-dominant hand on the beads, to provide pressure, while holding the handle with the other hand and twisting the instrument back and forth as per the rhythmic pattern desired.
