This is a hands-on taster course introducing the flamenco rhythms (Buleria, Seguirias, Solea, Tangos, Alegria etc.) on the cajón. 'Cajón' (pronounced ca-hon) means drawer or box in Spanish. It originates from Peru where it is used in folk music styles such as Festejo. Legend has it that African slaves in Peru started playing their grooves on the fishing 6 packing boxes where they worked when slave-owners banned their African drums. The Peruvian cajón then found its way to the loving hands of Paco De Lucia, who developed the guitar string system to create a more snarey sound.
