This item comes from a small craft workshop and is handmade. Since the production is focused on good sound, the size and weight specifications may differ slightly from the values indicated. We found that these characteristics enhance the handcrafted character and charisma of this instrument.
Medium-sized hand-braided caxixi made of black power cables
Obviously a creative and accent rich material: Compared to caxixis made of rattan reed, the natural seed filling produces a muted sound when hitting the power cable netting. Like this you achieve a nice contrast to the sound when the seeds hit the gourd floor. The bottom part is a thick and sanded piece of gourd. Very pretty and well made instrument, Marcos China at his best!
Customer reviews for "Caxixi - black power cable, medium"
"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.
