INTERESTING FACTS

Caxixi (pronounced ka-shee-shee) is a traditional African percussion instrument that is predominantly used in Brazil and other regions influenced by African culture. It is a pear-shaped basket, often made of woven rattan, filled with seeds or small pebbles that create sound when the caxixi is shaken. The caxixi is favored for its ability to produce a wide range of sounds and is commonly used in conjunction with the berimbau in capoeira, but it also finds its place in other musical styles.
