Caxixi with footstrap
An effect instrument for dancers or rhythm training! The caxixi has an elastic band on its upper part which easily slips over your foot and ties to your ankle. The bottom part of the caxixi is a thick and sanded piece of gourd, the filling is plant seeds. Nice instrument, well made and hand-braided of power cables.
Customer reviews for "Caxixi with footstrap"
"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.
