Shekeré variations in the hands of a master
Michael Pluznick having fun with 4 different, beautiful shekerés as his friend (and the one who made them all) plays a simple conga pattern to back him up. I love the variety of moves and the rhythmic variations that Michael puts down here. He is a 30-year master and teacher of lots of percussion instruments, and my go-to when I want to be inspired to learn more on shekeré.
