More about the Caxixi shaker

Just shake it any way you like. It has a handle so you can also hang it and play it using your own creativity.

What's included

A caxixi (pronounced ka-shee-shee) is a  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. Natives believed the caxixi to summon good enchanted spirits and to ward off evil ones.

In Capoeira music, the caxixi is played along with the berimbau. In West Africa it is used by singers and often alongside drummers.
