Quijada de burro, a shaker and scraper instrument from Peru, translates to “jaw of a donkey.” After a donkey has died, the jaw is removed and left to dry out. Then the teeth are carefully loosened so they will be able to produce a rattling sound. The quijada can be used either as a shaker or a scraper instrument, depending on the sound and rhythm desired.

The Travels With Music™ program includes a total of 6 hours of course content, comprised of 300 individual video and audio segments that collectively cover 15 world cultures, with two units per culture, for a total of 30 units. We have attempted to offer as broad a selection of world cultures as possible, covering the full expanse of the globe. To the left you will find a summary of the regions of the world, and the cultures within, which make up Travels With Music™.

It is our intention to continually add new music cultures to the Travels With Music™ program. In fact, we already have enough footage in our content library to enable us to add as many as 45 additional cultures to the Travels With Music™ program. To facilitate our efforts, we would be very interested in hearing from you as to which cultures you would most like to see added to the program. Please let us know!
