The Caxixi Seed shaker is a traditional percussion instrument commonly found across Africa and South America particularly in Brazil. They were originally a hand woven basketwork shaker with a flat bottomed gourd base which were traditionally cut from reed. Seeds bells or other small particles were placed inside to produce a soft and natural sound when shaken. Variations in sound are produced by varying the angle at which the caxixi is shaken.
