Caxixi

The caxixi is an idiophonic instrument of African origin. It is a small twined basket of cane, in the form of a clock, measuring about 10cm in length and 5cm in width; the opening is closed with a disk made of wood or a calabash. It has a handle to hold it and dry seeds or little shells inside. It is used mainly to complement the sound of the berimbau.
