"juju" foot rattles from Cameroon

CHF 25.00

These leg and foot rattles are made from the beans of a legume plant and are an essential part of the mask costume of traditional juju-dancers. They are tied around the feet and/or calves. The beating of the individual elements creates a rattling sound that is unique in the music of the western grasslands of Cameroon. However, this loud sound can also replace a conventional doorbell in your household, for example. These are leg and foot rattles made by blind and sighted craftsmen and marketed by "Prescraft", the handicraft project of the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon (a partner church of Mission 21).
