LEARN AND MASTER THE ORIGINAL AND INNOVATIVE CAXIXI TECHNIQUE
WITH WORLD-CLASS PERCUSSION ARTIST RENATO MARTINS
The CAXIXI is a Brazilian percussion instrument consisting of a closed basket with a flat bottom filled with seeds or other small particles. It is found across Africa and South America, but mainly in Brazil where the smaller-sized CAXIXI was initially played alongside the berimbau. In West Africa, it is used by singers and often alongside drummers. Natives believed the CAXIXI to summon good enchanted spirits and to ward off evil ones.
WHY SHOULD YOU PLAY THE CAXIXI?
The CAXIXI is the perfect choice for those percussionists and drum set players willing to add new sound and technique possibilities to their set and their playing. Drum set players can play the CAXIXI, HI-HAT and BASS DRUM simultaneously and enjoy endless possibilities. Percussionists can use the CAXIXI with other percussion instruments such as the Cajon, congas or any other. It's time to take your hand independence skills to the next level!
