Tito Medina Artisan Story

Tito Medina belongs to the fourth generation of gourd carvers; his parents Eulogio Medina and Guillermina Salome, are from Cochas Chicas, Peru which is well known for carving, etching, burning, and transforming gourds into unique works of art. Tito is a master craftsman and is known across the continent for his fine carvings and pyro-engraved gourds, each one telling a unique story. He has been carving gourds since childhood, and opened his first market stall in 1986. Through his work he has promoted the traditional craft of his region and has raised it to the level of a fine art. Over the years he has participated in several art fairs and received numerous awards for his work.

These maracas, made from the calabash or bottle gourd known for its long and slim shape, are a great gift for music lovers. The maraca, also known as shac-shacs in Trinidad and rumba shakers in some parts of Latin America, are a traditional percussion instrument throughout the Americas and the Caribbean. 

These maracas were hand-etched from a gourd in Huancayo Peru. Gourd carving is a traditional craft of the Andean mountain region and spans many generations. The art of carving gourds is helping to bring sustainable income to more than 20 artisans and their families.
