The caxixi (pronounced Ka-shee-shee) is an ancient African instrument that became popular in Brazil as a companion to the Berimbau, an African musical bow with a hollow gourd as a resonator. Because of its lively sounds, the caxixi was originally used to call forth the presence of the enchanted spirits and also to scare the evil away. Each IQ Plus Caxixi is unique, made from natural and non-endangered rattan woven into a bell-shaped shell. This instrument can create a wide variety of sounds and can be played as a rattle to drive the beat of music. Children can shake the beads against the side or against harder coconut shell bottom for different sounds. They can experiment with many different ways of shaking the instrument to produce different sounds and rhythms. This IQ Plus instrument is great for keeping time in a percussion ensemble or to accompany music in a classroom.
