The body is made from Calabash and the handle from the Chonta tree. They are filled with Achira seeds and decorated and carved with traditional designs - representing the traditional icaro song patterns which are sung by the shamans during Ayahuasca ceremonies.
Called 'wind of the jungle', is a kind of palm frond made from the leaves of Pariana stenolemma tutin. It is mostly used by Shamans in the Amazon basin as a rhythm and healing instrument during Ayahuasca ceremonies or during personal healing where the shacapa is rubbed and rattled over or near the patient’s body while singing an icaro (medicine song). This cleanses, refreshes and harmonises the energy field. The shamans have a wide range of movements which produce different sounds and energies.
Avaialble in small size and medium/big size.
