    Could be Televi (also known as patica), a Ghanaian instrument that is made from two gourds filled with small stones and connected by string. They are held in the hand and one end is used to strike the other.

    On a side note, I tried to find out bu using Google image search on them. The first picture shows "musical instruments", the second "fruit".
