Aboriginal Songline Clapsticks
Clapsticks are a traditional percussive instrument used for ceremony, social dancing, making music and to educate through storytelling. As for many traditional tools, they can serve more than one purpose, like also being used to dig for yams.
Our clapsticks are hand painted using traditional Arnhem Land techniques and styles and are specifically made for small hands and ideal for any early years educational setting or a home instrument set.
Our Class Clapstick Set is designed to allow children to engage in traditional music, sharing in the experience, and to allow conversations to begin in a group setting.
