Quijada - Peruvian Music and Instruments

The creative flair of Afro-Peruvians turned the lower jawbone of a donkey or horse into an effective percussion instrument.

It is held in one hand and hit with the other to keep the beat.

The unique sound of the quijada is produced by the rattling molars in the jawbone and amplified by the bone structure.
