Kush Kash: A musical instrument from Ghana

Cous Kash or Kasaka, is a very simple musical instrument from west Africa. It is a percussion instrument consisting of two small gourds (from the Oncoba spinosa tree) full of beans – essentially two small maracas connected by a string. One pumpkin is held in the hand and the other is quickly rotated from side to side around the hand, making a sound on impact.

    Awesome. Got this video from a friend from Nairobi. Immediately in love with the instrument. But can't find where I can buy it. If anyone knows an address/place/email I'd appreciate it.

    Where can this tool be ordered in Russia? It's hard to find him. It's not even on Alix.
