The asalato is a percussion instrument that originated from West Africa.

Each asalato consists of two gourds from the oncoba spinosa tree, which are filled with beans and joined by a string.

To play, hold one asalato in each hand and flick your wrist to swing it around.

Don't be deceived by the asalato's looks - it isn't just a simple shaker instrument. The asalato is easy to pick up, but tricky to master...
