Our cacho seed shaker features a colorful textile strap with a velcro closure making it easy to slip onto your wrist or ankle. The cacho depicted on the left has pieces and half shells, giving it a higher pitched sound. The one on the right is strung using full seeds, giving it a deeper pitched sound. Sold Individually. Let us choose one for you. Handcrafted in Peru.
A hand held bunch of palm fronds tied together and used in the Amazon as both a rhythm and healing instrument. In a healing, the chacapa is rubbed and rattled over or near the patient’s body to capture or brush out the spirit intrusion. Once he has it in his chacapa, the shaman then blows through the leaves to disperse the intrusion into the rainforest where the spirits of the plants absorb and discharge its energy. Our chapacas ship directly from Peru standard mail and take 3-4 weeks. Price includes starndard shipping. If you would like expedited mailing please email us for other options.
