Description

Benin caxixi use a small round black color seed as the fill material. This type of natural seed produces a consistent and full shhhShhh- shhhShh sound, think of a wind swept rain against a hard surface, a soothing and alive sound. Smaller size caxixi will make a slightly faster dried sound, larger size have a looser fullness with some bounce back depending on playing technique. The cane material used for the container is colored with a variety of interesting natural dyes. All Benin caxixis have a large loop handle that makes it easy to hold either one or more at a time.
