Where Caxixis come to life

Marco's China

Marco China (*1958 in Rio de Janeiro) is today one of the leading Brazilian manufacturers of hand-made percussion instruments . At the age of 14 he started learning Capoeira and building his first berimbaus .

Marcos China has his workshop in Leme, a district of Rio de Janeiro that is just behind the world-famous Copacabana. You can see the sea from his workshop.

Every Caxixi is not just a percussion instrument , but the result of 40 years of experience in instrument making.

All about the instrument Caxixi

How do you pronounce Caxixi?

The word "Caxixi" is pronounced " Ka-schi-schi ", because in Portuguese "x" becomes "sch". The Brazilian spelling of the word "Caxixi" is "Caxíxí".

How to play Caxixi?

In contrast to a conventional shaker, a Caxixi offers a lot of playing options . The base, which is traditionally made from a special part of the Cabasa (bottle gourd), basically gives you two sounds: a precise touch on the ground and the softer basket sound . Of course, this cannot be divided into black and white, but rather offers many tonal shades of gray. If you now combine two caxixis, one in each hand, you have endless possibilities, from simple and easy to highly virtuoso.
