Just a few of my caxixis, pronounced ca shi shi. They are baskets with hard floors full of beads and are great shakers. I have many of different sizes but these and one other I use to play berimbau will follow.

This caxixi is held in the hand that holds the stick used to strike the wire on the berimbau. A stone is held in the other hand and is pressed against the wire to attain different tones. A fun instrument to play.

And the berimbau. Which may already be here.

RE: A few of my instrments. Drummers and percussionists may like this.
Here is another set of Cuban timbales. In an earlier shot with my congas and bongos you saw my brass timbales. They have a warmer sound than these, which are steel. In all I have three sets of timabales, two full sets of brass and steel and a smaller set of steel 'timbalitos' which I will show later.


Gon Bops stainless steel timbales with a Pearl wood block in place of the usual cowbells, which are currently with a student.

One of the classic shakers for studio and live work. I have had this many years and it has done hundreds of gigs.

More shakers. These have a softer sound. The red ones are connected. The black one had a brother but a rubber band was used to hold them together. The band broke and the other one is 'somewhere'.

My old classic bongo bell. The bongo bell is used to play a specific rhythm in Afro Cuban music when the bongos are put aside during a section of a song.

In Brasilian samba nobody cares as long as it fits. This is why I prefer samba. Although I adore both.

Many ways to play these. Like shakers and maracas, or you can play between your hand and thigh getting different sounds from each. You can even use your fingers to play the beads lightly. It's endless! Smile

I have many tambourines. This is one of my favorites because it is so light. But it is limited due to it not having a skin.

BTW. The humble tambourine can be traced back over 5000 years!

Yet another Brasilian instrument, the reco reco. One plays it by scraping the wires.

A woodblock.

This is an Arabic type of tambourine know as a riq. Very hard to master. I have two. One is with a student. This is an authentic riq from the Middle East. Great fun but tricky!

My favorite samba whistle and a couple of bird calls. As a percussionist one may have to play any sound. I used the duck call when I backed a play many years ago.

These are very cool, shakers combined with clappers. Pearl calls them tang tangs.
