Small reed caxixi
Belongs in every basic capoeirista equipment: a classical reed caxixi. The bottom part is a carved and sanded gourd piece, plant seeds are used as filling. A pretty, authentic and well made instrument! Caxixis made of reed have a clear, sharp and defined sound with a nice contrast between both sound qualities - the floor 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!
Customer reviews for "Caxixi - reed, small"
"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.
