The Siesta range of instruments originate from the endeavor to trade fairly and ethically with communities and makers all over the world, from Kenya and Nairobi to Bali and India. By working closely with small co-operatives and local suppliers, Siesta instruments are all produced using local materials and with methods that are in some cases centuries old.
This delightful Guiro has been carved as a Frog, and has a deep-pitched scraping sound. Complete with matching carved striker, this instrument is full of personality and would make a heart-warming addition to any percussion collection! Made from Acacia wood - you simply run the striker along the frog's back to make it croak, or hit it on the head for a 'pock' sound.
