This unique & showy piece is perfect for a change of pace on any recital.

    Program Notes
    Caxixando is a short solo for a pair of caxixis, which are instruments typical of northeast Brazil. The caxixi is most often used as a single shaker. The player holds it in his right hand along with a stick used to play the berimbau (an Afro-Brazilian instrument). The combined sound of the berimbau and the caxixi is characteristic of the popular capoeira, a martial art disguised as a dance that was developed by African slaves during the colonial period in Brazil. In Caxixando, I have tried to explore the expressive qualities of these simple baskets filled with seeds, which require a sophisticated playing technique. The title is a respelling of the word coshishando, which refers to a whispering type of conversation usually associated with gossip. Caxixando is dedicated to my friend Vanildo Monteiro.

    Detailed notation legends, instructions, and photos are included in the score for clarification.
