The Asalato, also known as the Aslatua or Kashaka, is a traditional West African percussive instrument. Traditionally, an Asalato is made of a hollow gourd from the Oncoba Spinosa tree. When the gourds dry and fall from the trees, children collect them and fill them with orange pebbles, then connect two gourds with a string. It's light and portable and super easy to learn. It won't take much for this lovely instrument to get your groove on!
