Krakebs or garagab (Arabic: قراقب, also transliterated as qaraqib or qraqib, singular qarqaba (قرقبة)) are large metal castanet-like musical instruments which are the primary rhythmic component of Gnawa music. They are used primarily in Morocco and Algeria and are considered to be a hypnotic instrument, allowing people to be engulfed in a trance-like state.
