The Cajon is a versatile percussion instrument, originating in Peru, often referred to as “A drum kit in a box”. This instrument is becoming more widely used in many musical settings from Flamenco and Rumba to Pop and Folk music. The Cajon is still widely undiscovered and these pioneering workshops are the perfect introduction to this accesible and inspirational Afro-Peruvian instrument.
These events are sponsored by Luthier Vicente Casto, a gifted cajon and guitar artisan from Huelva (Spain). We use his amazing cajons in our workshops, although you are welcome to bring your own cajon if you wish.
