A Kokiriko is a tradional Japanese percussion instrument with bamboo slats held together with a leather strap which produces a sound sometimes described as similar to dominoes falling as the slats strike one another.
Ours is based on a traditional Kokiriko featuring wooden slats connected by a strap and has wooden handles at each end to hold onto. When played it can produce a crisp and loud sound and is normally played by holding the handle in each hand and using up and down movements either slowly or fast to produce different sounds to create an interesting variety of rhythmic effects. Overall an original and fun instrument which appeals to playes of all ages and a great addition to the percussion bag.
A larger alternative is also available, PP535 as well as an Early Years Plastic Clatterpillar PP368, which is based on a Kokiriko but suitable more for children.
