Small reed caxixi for berimbau
Every capoeirista knows this little instrument which belongs in every basic capoeira equipment set: a classical reed caxixi. The bottom part is a piece of sanded gourd cut into shape, the filling is made of seeds. A pretty, authentic and handmade instrument! Reed caxixis have a clear, sharp and defined sound which brings out nicely the contrast between the gourd piece and the basketwork. It's also a handy size for rhythm training in groups, as an effect in your band or in the studio!
