I was very excited to find your website... For some reason it had never come up before in my search for info on "Televi."A friend of mine brought a pair back from Ghana and I was immediately blown away. The set that he gave me broke and I didn't know what to do... so

I made my own.

After learning the basic move, I have been developing my technique for about 2 years and now everywhere I go, I am mesmerizing school kids with a set in each hand.

I'm dying to meet someone else who can play these things. I am a professional musician. I make much of my living performing in schools around Ohio... So far, I've led about 50 kids in making this instrument... (knowing nothing about the history until finding your website)

Can't wait to play my first pair of Kashaka.
I'll send students to your website.

Sincerely, Hal (advocate for a funkier world)

Are you Rufus?
Great label man. Making the world a little funkier everyday. I love it. I met you at the Festival of Friends and I've been enjoying these since. I'm getting better but haven't moved up to the shaking and spinning yet.
Thanks for the fun!
I'll buying more for gifts that's for sure!

Nice site! I bought a set(?) of "Aslato" a few months ago in Portland OR - and they are a lot of fun. I can't wait to try some of your
techniques (Loco Sha Ka!).
What do you charge in USD? Shipping costs to Oregon? What are they made from?

This is a brand new section, and we're in the process of collecting comments from our cyber-visitors - that's why there are so few right now. We'd love to hear from you, so read on for some more inspiration.

Some Suggested Topics: What do you think of our site? How 'bout that ol' redesign? Did you like the slo-mo videos? How did you hear about us? How did you first hear about Kashakas? What name do you know them by? Any educational tips? What do you want to see on this site?

We'd love to hear of anything and everything Kashaka-related. We're not only looking for suggestions, we actually want to collect as much information on this awesome instrument and share it with whomever is interested.

And thanks for sharing!
