Caxixi for berimbau
The perfect caxixi for berimbau players! The bottom part is made of a thick and sanded gourd piece. The caxixi is filled with plant seeds. Pretty and well made instrument! The basketwork is made of thin power cables. A nicely made, small and not too loud caxixi which can also be handy for rhythm training in groups!
Customer reviews for "Caxixi berimbau"(3)
Handliche Caixixi mit guten Klang. - Etwas dezenter im Klang wie die großen, aber dafür leichter, so dass Anfängern beim Berimbau spielen nicht gleich die Hand abfällt...
gut, ist auch Geschmacksache
Nice little caxixi, sounds great. I chose it as I have small hands but the handle is still a bit big and didn't help me have a better grip which was what I was after when buying a smaller caxixi.
"Marcos China RIO"
Marcos, nicknamed 'China', lives in Rio. He is a capoeirista, musician and an instrument maker. Marcos used to live in France for many years and was very successful with his Band 'Tupi Nago'.
Back in Rio he started to make Caxixis because he wasn´t able to find any in the quality he wanted. Bit by bit he added other small percussion instruments to his range.
He makes small series of instruments with extraordinary artisanal skills and love to small details. MARCOS CHINA keeps on inventing funny little instruments like the caixa de mesa, the saculegé or a minishaker made of plastic parts of PET bottles.
MARCOS CHINA berimbaus are highly appreciated amongst capoeiristas as well as percussionists.
