Product Description

These Guiros are made from red paduk wood, chosen especially for its great resonance. The Igbo tribe of southeastern Nigeria has used theseĀ blocks for years in ceremonies and dances. To play them, hold the solid edge in your hand and strike the open edge with the stick. You can get different tones by hitting it in different places along the edge. Great for a combination instrument using a wood block and guiro.
