The Caixa is a snare drum with thick wires that is tuned to a high pitch and used to play the repetitive driving rhythms that give samba music its drive. Unlike its Western marching band counterpart, it's played snare-side up.

In the vibrant streets of Brazil, the caixa drum is the heartbeat of the rhythm, cutting through the air with its infectious groove. From samba reggae and ijexa to funk and coco, it's the glue that keeps the crowd moving.
