"Another percussion instrument for my Christmas family band!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I already reviewed two more instruments made by Mrs. Dewi, and this one rates 5 stars as the others do. It makes a nice musical noise when you shake it and also is very pretty and nicely painted. I very much like and enjoy the items she makes that can be used to make music; they are a lot of fun.

"Piece of art"

I compare Trisnas piece to a few coconut shell percussion instruments I found with Native Americans. They are all beautiful. This maraca stands out unique.
