The double-pod caxixi (kaa-SHEE-shee) shaker is hand woven using brightly colored reed, hard gourd base, and pebbles and seeds. The double basket size is great for more volume in larger groups. It creates a high pitched, clear-cutting percussive sound, great for keeping time in a percussion ensemble. It is typically played upright, using a sharp up-and-down motion so the seeds and pebbles strike the hard gourd base.
This caxixi features:
- 5-6" tall baskets (2), 3-4" round, 3-4" handle connecting baskets
- Durable woven construction with handle and cross-support to keep baskets in place
- Reed permanently dyed in bright colors, woven in matching patterns
- Typically played in pairs, but sold individually
- African-made product from Africa Heartwood Project
