Hand-braided nylon caxixi with plexi glass base
Another beautiful piece of Marcos China's artesanal work - a caxixi made of thick braided nylon string on rattan struts. The bottom part is a piece plexi glass. The used materials and the transparent base make this caxixi quite an eyecatcher! The filling is plastic beads. Pretty and well made instrument, great and soft sound!
Customer reviews for "Caxixi Studio - nylon acryl"
"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.
