Caxixi rattles are beautifully woven, small, hand percussion instruments from Africa and South America. These simple rattles have a flat piece on the bottom originally made from a dried gourd. The rest of the rattle is a woven 'basket' that holds small items which create the sound when it is shaken.
Although this instrument may look quite simple, a caxixi rattle can make a wide variety of sounds. Skilled percussionists can create some really intricate rhythms with caxixis and they are often used by singers in West Africa when performing with a drum group.
