Ensaasi: Shakers – Percussion instrument

The Ensaasi forms another section of the percussion family and is also known by the name of Enseege shakers.

The Ensaasi form a small part of the Ugandan percussion family and are also known by the name of Enseege shakers.

The shakers are made from gourds or shells and are used to accompany other traditional Ugandan instruments. The sound forms from the use of beads or other small objects such as pebbles, which rattle against one another inside the Ensaasi’s rounded shells when they are shaken as part of a dance or performance.
