CAXIXI 1

LEARN THE BRAZILIAN CAXIXI SHAKER TECHNIQUE

Learn innovative CAXIXI techniques and improve your independence.

A CAXIXI is a Brazilian percussion instrument consisting of a closed basket with a flat bottom filled with seeds or other small particles. The round bottom is traditionally cut from a dried gourd. The CAXIXI is an indirectly struck idiophone with sounds being produced by shaking the instrument in many different ways, varying the angle at which the CAXIXI contents strike the reed basket (softer sound) or the hard bottom (louder, sharper sound).

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.
