The Sound of Moroccan Culture

From the ancient folk pieces of the Berber mountain communities, to the Arab-Andalusian music of the cities, to the roots-fusion that you'll hear blaring from taxi radios and café ghetto blasters, music is the ultimate expression of Morocco's culture. 

Qarqaba  (also known as karkabas)

A pair of two-sided hand cymbals, clapped together to make interlocking rhythm patterns.  A set of metallic castanets held in the hand. Originally made out of iron, they are now normally made out of a steel alloy. They produce a sound similar to the beat of horses' hooves. The qraqeb is commonly used in Gnawa music.  2 sizes available.
