Introducing the Percussion Plus Honestly Made huancayo maraca

From the Percussion Plus Honestly Made range, these huancayo maracas are hand-carved and painted in the traditional style of Huancayo, Peru. Their eye-catching patterns and colours make them a vibrant addition to any classroom or percussion collection.

These instruments are made using natural gourds, which are dried out, hollowed and then filled with beads or small stones. The beads then bounce around inside the gourd to produce the classic rattling sound of a maraca.

Each instrument is hand made using traditional materials and methods. See below for more information about the Honestly Made range of instruments from Percussion Plus.

These items are musical instruments not toys and there may be small parts on or in some of them. Younger players should use them under supervision.

A fun way to explore the world of music

Maracas are often used in South American, Caribbean and Latin music and can be used in many different genres, such as salsa, reggae, pop and more. This makes them a fun way to teach children about music from different cultures around the world.

The maraca is also used in harmony with other instruments, so the player must be able to demonstrate timed precision when shaking them, which is why they are a great way to develop a child’s rhythm, coordination and listening skills.
