The quijada is an idiophone made from the jawbone of a donkey… with the original teeth intact.
Traditionally used in Peru and Cuba, the quijada has been adopted by other countries for either effects or, mostly, folkloric, or traditional music.

I recorded these samples with my good friend Robert Fernandez. I was in Phoenix in 2021 for his mother’s funeral (DEP) and when all the stress was over, we decided to record some of his rare/not sampled much, instruments.
Available in both Kontakt 6 (full version) and Decent Sampler versions.
