Our medium basket also has the same spectrum of sounds as our small basket but with much
more variety. In this basket we have the Baobab (a large nut with seed inside) that creates a
soft rattling sound and has a wonderful polished texture. We also include the Sonaja Shaker
which has a soft bell sound and is vividly coloured. We have also added a ceramic flute which is
a new texture and sounds like a gentle whistle. There is a larger set of panpipes for more
musical range and finally the Hosho Maraca adds a new dimension to the rattles section by using natural seed pods to create a distinctive rattle sound.
