GON BOPS ADDS HANDCRAFTED BRAZILIAN CAXIXI TO HAND PERCUSSION LINE
100% hand-woven in Brazil from sustainable natural materials, new Gon Bops Caxixi deliver lively, organic sounds that provide excellent rhythmic accompaniment and color. The combination of wild banana tree seeds striking the hard gourd-skin base produces a sharp, high-pitched tone, contrasting with the softer, deeper pitch when the seeds strike the woven body. Sold as single shakers in 3 sizes – mini, small and large – Gon Bops Caxixi are ideal for playing an endless variety of rhythms and sound effects. They can be played individually, or as different-sized pairs for contrasting tones.
With origins in ancient West Africa, it was believed Caxixi could ward off evil spirits and summon good enchanted spirits. While Gon Bops makes no such claim for its new instruments, they are certainly guaranteed to inspire and summon your creative spirit!
