The development of Cajon

- Jun 01, 2019-


Cajon first came from the central and western countries of Africa and was brought to the United States by the slaves. The 17th and 18th centuries were popular in South America. In 2001, the National Cultural Society of Peru declared it a “national cultural heritage”.


Nowadays, this instrument from Africa has spread to all over the world. Not only professional percussionists, but other musicians have also begun to learn to play drums. While playing, the player sits on the instrument, leaning forward slightly and lifting the card macro at an angle. You can tap the drumhead with your palm or use your finger to drum, and some people put on the pedal and use the foot to control the tap. This allows the drum to replace the drum in some drums.
