Learn to Play Caxixi!

The World’s First (and Only) Caxixi Instructional DVD with Robert Wallace

Caxixi (“Cah-she-she”) are incredibly versatile and fun percussion instruments from Brazil. Much more than mere “shakers”, Caxixis have gourd bottoms that make crisp and clean sounds when you to “throw” the seeds inside the hand-made woven baskets. This allows you to play syncopated, complimentary rhythms while keeping the “ride” or pulse of the music.

Inside this breakthrough DVD, the FIRST AND ONLY CAXIXI INSTRUCTIONAL DVD IN THE WORLD, you will learn:

  • How to hold the Caxixi
  • Basic Caxixi playing technique
  • Rhythms from Brail and beyond: Samba, Afoxe, Baiao, Funk, Son Clave, More
  • Includes 20-minute Play-Along section

Every rhythm is broken down and taught SLOWLY with a close-up on Robert’s hands and the Caxixi so you can learn all the nuances and hand techniques.

No prior experience with Caxixi or hand-percussion needed! Just a desire to learn.

Caxixi and DVD can be bought seperately, or as a package (see below).
