Caxixis are found in Africa and South America, particularly in Brazil. In capoeira music, the caxixi is played at the same time as the berimbau. In West Africa, it is used by singers, often together with drums. The caxixi (pronounced ca-chi-chi) is a percussion instrument consisting of a closed bell-shaped, flat-bottomed basket containing seeds or other small items. It is an idiophone, like the maracas, used in the same way: by shaking it. With the caxixi you can obtain two very different sounds: when the seeds inside touch the bottom of the gourd the sound is high-pitched and powerful, on the other hand, when the seeds touch the body braided in rush or rattan, the sound is soft and lower.
