Introducing the wooden kokiriko

This Percussion Plus large wooden kokiriko comes with a wide, stable binding strap for reliability and easy playability. With this instrument, you can create clattering and rattling sounds with the flick of a wrist.

Cultural origins

A Kokiriko is a traditional Japanese percussion instrument with bamboo slats held together with a leather strap which produces a sound sometimes described as similar to dominoes falling as the slats strike one another. When played it can produce a crisp and loud sound and is normally played by holding the handle in each hand and using up and down movements either slowly or fast to produce different sounds to create an interesting variety of rhythmic effects.

Great for all ages

Overall an original and fun instrument which appeals to players of all ages and a great addition to the percussion bag. A larger alternative is also available PP535 as well as an PP368 Early Years Plastic Clatterpillar Kokiriko which is based on a Kokiriko but suitable more for children.
