Description

The traditional Portuguese musical instrument: Cartaxo, or Cartaxinho, is an artifact made from common cane (Phragmites australis).

It is called Cartaxo because it emits sounds similar to those of the common bird Cartaxo (Saxicola torquatus).

This popular musical object of the type of idiophones is in some regions called Castanhola. Cartaxinho is made of half-cane which serves as a resonance box, in which a small piece of cane is placed, in tension with twine, which is played by the musician’s fingers, producing sound with the impact of this small piece against the instrument body. It is handmade and used as a rhythmic accompaniment to melodic instruments, especially harmonium, concertina, or accordion.

Being so popular, this traditional Portuguese musical instrument is therefore worthy of our recognition.
