#HUMAN ....PEOPLE LITERALLY DIE FROM THIS SHIT... few take this as simple plain old fun with no toxic shit attached to it. BUT BILLIONS LIVE THIS SHIT LIKE FOR REAL FOR REAL. THEY TAKE IT AS THEIR LIVES. THE MIND IS A VERY VERY SCARY PLACE... NOT MANY CAN HANDLE PLACES THEIR MINDS TAKE THEM TOO. APART FROM BUSINESS OWNERS TRYING TO MAKE ENDS MEET...this shit really needs to have an OPTION.

The gourd is a functional creation of
nature with a wide variety of uses and
traditions in cultures around the world.
The shekere is a #percussioninstrument, that originated in #WestAfrica, the instrument made from a hollowed out gourd or calabash which is a fruit that grows on a vine in various different sizes, which is then covered on the outside with a net of seeds, beads or shells, and has different names.

The instrument is connected with various religious functions in West Africa and it is used for folklore as well as some of the popular music it is played in all Yoruba styles of music such as #Juju, #Apala, #Fuji, #Waka, #AfroBeat and #Highlife.

Sekere drummers like the Baba in the picture are known as Alaje because of the cowrie shells laced around the drum used to serve as tenable currencies, monies in the olden days before civilization. In Nigeria, the very large beaded gourd, like the one the baba holds in the picture, is otherly called "Aje" and traditionally is owned and played only by professional musicians. The beaded gourd is considered highly personal, it is never loaned or shared, even with family members. However, a son who is a professional musician may inherit his father’s #sekere.
