The djabara is a percussion instrument traditionally played by women in West African music. This African shekere is fabricated from a squash mounted with a net covered with cowrie shells, seeds or pearls. The djabara may be shaken, hit on the hand, turned in the hand, even thrown and caught in rhythm. Its sound is close to that of the maraca, whose seeds are on the inside.
