    Welcome To Djembe-L FAQ "How to Make A Shekeré" v8b
    Steve Tierra provides detailed instructions on how to make the instrument from a gourd.

  • Whichever way you've decided to work the mesh, top to bottom or vice versa, you'll need to form a ring that is small enough (in relation to the gourd at that point) to not slip over the waist of the gourd, but not so small as to prevent easy movement

  • Lay the foundation ring out on a big table or the floor and make a big star by slipping the loop end of the double verticals under the ring from outside the ring, then pulling the ends through so that the cord forms a half hitch over the ring and the verticals lie flat

  • The polyester cord I used didn't want to stay tightly looped so I slipped a piece of wax paper underneath and put a drop of crazy glue at each loop to hold it until the mesh was completed

  • After struggling with the ring slipping all around I got the idea of holding it down with rubber bands

  • Slip the correct color bead to complete your design on either the right or left vertical and knot as above

  • You do want some bare gourd to show through (enough perhaps to allow it to stand on the table with the beads being mashed) but not so much that the mesh will want to slip back down the gourd
