Axatse

Axatse falls in the instrument category of vibrating gourd. It is made out of a gourd, hollowed out by removing the seeds, and covered with a net of beads or seeds. The sound of axatse is produced by striking it lightly on the thigh and the palm. When struck to rebound off the thigh a dry rattling sound is produced and described in the vocal syllable as "Pa." Struck in a clap-like manner by the palm it produces a rattling sound combined with a tonal component from the vibration of the air inside the gourd. This is described as "Ti" in vocal syllable.
