The Ensaasi forms another section of the percussion family and is also known by the name of Enseege shakers.
The shakers are made from gourds or shells and are used to accompany other traditional instruments in Uganda. The sound forms from the use of beads or other small objects such as pebbles, which rattle against one another with movement.
