Guiros


Collection: Guiros

Welcome, here you will be able to explore our guiro collection. A guiro is a type of percussion musical instrument that is played by scraping indents with a stick. We have uniquely made green cricket guiros that have been hand carved from wood, and handpainted. Natural bamboo guiro rasps, and our popular gourd guiro that also works as a shaker rattle!

Its history is unknown but is said to relate back to originate in either Africa or South America. The Aztecs created something that is very similar to a güiro, it was known as an omitzicahuastli, whilst this is a bit of a mouthful to pronounce it was also played in the same manner.
