Chacapa - also known as Shakapa, Chakapa, Chacarpa or Huaira Sacha - is a ritual leaf rattle that is used in Amazonian healing rituals along with shaman drums, rattles, mouth arches, feathers, tobacco and songs.

As their sound is reminiscent of the murmur of the mighty treetops of the forest and their movements allow the air to circulate gently, they carry the "wind of the forest" within them. This makes these leaf tufts particularly suitable for wind or air rituals. Our Chacapas can also be used in healing work and sound therapy. Evenly beaten or shaken, the rhythm also supports trance journeys, can be used for energetic massages or also for sweat lodge ceremonies.

The sound of our Chacapas has similarities to the percussion brush used in jazz, which is often played on snare drums and which produces the rustling sound typical for the Chacapa. The sound of this ritual instrument unfolds very finely and intensively, allowing imaginative improvisation and creative performing.

The Oak Leaf Chacapa, which consists of laced oak leaves, has a percussive, dense rustling sound and resembles the Maple Chacapa. The oak has a religious meaning not only since the Teutons and Celts, because it was already worshipped in ancient Greece and Rome as the tree of Zeus and Jupiter. It is regarded as a symbol of eternity, as it becomes as old as almost 30 generations of people. With the Germanic Central Europeans the oak was consecrated to the god Donar and associated with strength and success. Oak groves were considered particularly sacred, as they were sacrificed to the gods. With the Christianization the tree shrines disappeared and yet the sacred oak has survived in regional customs until today - and with DAN MOI as a (ritual) musical instrument.

Our oak Chacapa is a regional natural product from Finland and can therefore deviate slightly from the picture. It is also only available seasonally. The handle is wrapped in recycled cotton fabric.
