What is Asalato ?

Asalato is a traditional west African musical instrument. One asalato is made of 2 natural nuts shells, seeds or beans inside the shell, and a code connecting 2 shells. Simple but unique, it can produce various rhythms in 6/8 time or 16 beats. A ball held in a palm, while the code goes between a forefinger and the middle finger. When the hand moves back and force, the other ball turns around a palm and 2 balls hit each other, creating click & shaker sounds.
