These Cuban percussion instruments were donated by Ann Legg to the RCLPC music ministry after her recent trip to Cuba. The chekeré is a large, hollow gourd almost entirely surrounded by a network of cords, to which many colored beads are attached. Widely used in Afro-Cuban sacred and popular music, it may be twisted, shaken or slapped producing a subtle variety of effects; musically, it is more flexible than maracas. Maracas made of leather, such as the ones in this photo, were first introduced in Venezuela and provide a better sound quality than maracas made from other materials. Claves, which are made of short wooden dowels and are very important in Cuban music, are often used to play a repeating rhythmic figure throughout a piece, known as clave.
